The Mind-Body Collaborative is an evidenced-based Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT).
Frequently, clients and families seeking assistance are pulled out of their natural therapeutic supports, (school, work, family relationships, friendships, hobbies) to engage in treatment because most mental health care is group/milieu based. Clients must conform to the group schedule of the PHP or IOP, or go away to another city or State to 'get better'. There are alternatives to this approach.
We believe people return to sustained health and wellness in the context of their natural therapeutic supports in their lived environments.
It is not unusual for people to be working with multiple providers who rarely, if ever, see or communicate with each other. Integrated care is a hallmark of PACT, and a core element of how our team operates.
Collaborating with individuals in their communities as we embark on the journey to mental wellness.
Collaboration: Working alongside individuals and their support system in the community to achieve one's full potential.
Compassion: Embodying the spirit of kindness and human connection.
Curiosity: Partnering with individuals to discover their unique experience.
To create a world where people feel empowered to engage in a meaningful life.
Adolescents in crisis that need to be able to access care that works with their school schedules and their parent's work schedules.
College students wanting robust support on campus rather than taking a medical leave while completing their studies.
Busy professionals that need flexibility of having support come to them on a regular basis at or near their work.
Clients with chronic and persistent mental health challenges who need the support of a team familiar with navigating chronic suicidality, psychosis, or other serious mental health issues that get in the way of daily activities and self care.
Clients discharging from inpatient hospitalization, residential programs, aftercare programs, as well as traditional therapeutic settings like PHP's and IOP's who need support re-integrating into key life roles (family, school, work, hobbies, spirituality).
We will also work with clients who might be utilizing traditional outpatient services like individual therapy, family therapy and medication management but are experiencing more significant distress and would like to avoid hospitalization or the need to move away from their life and loved ones.
