For children and adults who currently receive Medicaid can receive mental health services through the Community Based Counseling Program. These services are ideal for behavioral issues, depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma. Services take place in the home, community, or school. Our trained clinicians provide clinical counseling, support, education and other tools to assist the youth and adults in their positive development. For adults who would like to receive Community Based Counseling, an additional assessment is conducted before services begin to determine eligibility as set by Medicaid. A clinician will initially meet with you to discuss the level of need and severity of challenges. Approval is typically received 2-3 weeks and services can begin. This program is ideal for those who are in need of additional support to maintain their independence.
