Behavioral Health Screenings
Behavioral Health Screenings provide early identification of behavioral health issues. They are utilized to facilitate appropriate referral for a more focused assessment and/or treatment. BHS is designed to quickly identify behavioral health issues and/or risk of development of behavioral health problems and/or substance abuse.
Diagnostics assessments are utilized to determine the need for services by establishing medical necessity. They are also used to help the clinician establish and/or confirm a diagnosis so an effective course of treatment can be identified. The initial assessment is used to determine the client’s mental status, social functioning, and to identify any physical or medical conditions. If a family member or guardian is available, they may be included in the clinical interview.
- Individual Counseling is designed to help the client reach their goals, improve their quality of life, and to increase their self-efficacy. The relationship between the client and therapist is fostered in a supportive environment and emphasizes the importance of collaboration. Epworth provides individual therapy for all ages.
- Group Therapy is a service intervention designed to highlight commonalities of psychosocial stressors that typically cause some form of challenges in an individual’s life. Group therapy captures the idea that people can learn from one another while learning how to express and accept constructive feedback. It serves to enhance social support and improve overall daily functioning.
- Family Therapy looks at the structure and foundation of one’s immediate environment and how generational patterns may impact the way one perceives their role within a family structure. In addition, it allows family members to speak openly and honestly to work on boundary setting, clarify expectations, and improve any conflict within the home. Family Therapy aims to heal relationships which can then improve quality of life outside of the home.
Crisis services are short-term services designed to assist someone who is experiencing a crisis that is leading to deterioration in coping and functioning.The purpose of this therapeutic intervention is to help the client return to a previous level of functioning and/or to stabilize the client.
