Services We Offer
A GUIDE TO YOUR GOALS
We offer several services to enhance your life and help you to achieve your mental health goals.
A peer is a person who has had several years in behavioral health recovery. Optum programs offer help from people who’ve “been there” to increase understanding of each member’s individual concerns, as well as foster hope and encouragement toward a successful recovery. Peers serve to support each other and to challenge associated stigma and discrimination.
Community Based Rehabilitative Services
CBRS is a program designed to help clients work on their skills outside of the counseling office. CBRS workers have a bachelor's degree in a Human Service field and are able to meet with clients in the community and their homes to help them overcome their mental health challenges.
Case management is the coordination of community-based services by a professional or team to provide people the quality mental health care that is customized accordingly to an individual's setbacks or persistent challenges and aid them to their recovery.
Targeted Care Coordination
Targeted Care Coordination is utilized by the YES program of Idaho to help with communication among all parties included in care. Each client is part of creating a Personal Care Service Plan.
