Specialized Care For Children With Persistent Behavioral Health Conditions

PARTNERSHIP WITH FAMILIES (PWF)

PWF is a strength-based, family-driven program that works in collaboration with families, schools, the juvenile justice system, the Children’s Division, and other child serving agencies to provide a comprehensive system of care for the child and their family in an effort to keep children and youth safe, at home, in school, and becoming productive members of the community.

WRAPAROUND

With the assistance of an integrated health specialist, children and their families will engage in a process called “wraparound” that will “wrap” needed services and supports around the child and their family resulting in a unique plan of care focused on health and wellness. Wellness plans may include goal-oriented skill building, employment and educational supports, linking to natural and community supports, psychiatry, counseling, primary care, and dental services.

Specialized Care For Adults With Chronic Behavioral Health Conditions

Compass Health Network offers a complete continuum of services and supports for patients with the most serious behavioral health challenges resulting from brain disorders that create a chronic medical condition. Just like other chronic medical conditions (diabetes, heart disease, COPD, etc.), people with serious and persistent behavioral health challenges can be treated successfully and live full, productive, healthy lives.

PERSON-CENTERED INTEGRATED CARE

With the assistance of an integrated health specialist, adults with serious behavioral health challenges will build a wellness plan suited to their unique needs. Wellness plans might include goal-oriented skill building, employment and educational supports, linking to natural and community supports, psychiatry, counseling, primary care, and dental services.

EMPLOYMENT & EDUCATION SUPPORT

We believe employment is an essential component of recovery for many people with mental illness and offer Individual Placement and Support (IPS), an evidence-based practice approach to vocational rehabilitation for people with severe mental illness. This model has consistently proven to be more effective than traditional approaches in helping people achieve and maintain employment. Core principles include:

Eligibility is based on consumer choice.
No one is excluded who wants to participate. Supported employment is integrated with treatment. Employment specialists coordinate plans with the treatment team: the case manager, therapist, psychiatrist, etc.
Job search starts soon after a consumer expresses interest in working.

There are no requirements for completing extensive pre-employment assessment and training, or intermediate work experiences (like pre-vocational work units, transitional employment or sheltered workshops).

Consumer preferences are important.

Choices and decisions about work and support are individually  based on the person’s preferences, strengths, and experiences.

Competitive employment is the goal.
The focus is community jobs anyone can apply for that pay at least minimum wage, including part-time and full-time jobs.
Follow-along supports are continuous.

Individualized supports to maintain employment continue as long as consumers want the assistance.

Benefits counseling is part of the employment decision-making process.
Personalized benefits planning and guidance help consumers to make informed decisions about job starts and changes.

ASSERTIVE COMMUNITY TREATMENT

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) provides many types of services to people with serious mental illnesses. ACT teams provide services directly to people in their community. ACT team members receive specialty training and have the skills they need to meet the many needs of the people they serve. The ACT team provides these services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, each day of the year.

People getting services from an ACT team are usually people with schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders (e.g., schizoaffective disorder), and bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness); those who are not helped by usual outpatient models; those who have difficulty getting to appointments on their own; those who have had bad experiences in the traditional system; or those who have limited understanding of their need for help.

ACT and Assertive Community Treatment — Transitional Aged Youth (ACT-TAY) provide several specialized services directly to people in the community living with serious mental illnesses.  Team members receive training and have skills necessary to meet the many needs of the people they serve.

Team members help those they serve to learn how to manage symptoms of a mental illness, as well as dealing with housing, finances, employment, medical care, substance use, family, and daily life. The teams provide these services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, each day of the year.

HOUSING SUPPORT

Housing assistance is available to adults who currently receive behavioral health services from Compass Health Network. The goal of our housing programs is to help people live in community settings suited to their needs and preferences. There are a number of options, however, capacity is limited.

CLUBHOUSE

Bel-Ray (Belton, Missouri), Harmony (Washington, Missouri), and Headway Clubhouses (St. Charles, Missouri) are organized communities that support people living with the effects of mental illness. Clubhouse members are given opportunities tailored to meet their unique needs to rejoin the worlds of friendships, family, important work, employment, education, and health and wellness activities. The Clubhouses are restorative environments for people who have had their lives drastically disrupted due to mental illness and need the support of others who believe that recovery from mental illness is possible for all.

VIRTUAL REALITY (VR) TREATMENT
Virtual Reality (VR) Treatment simulates real-life scenarios in your brain that might cause mental distress. Used in conjunction with proven therapeutic treatments like exposure therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, VR treatment aids in the treatment of anxiety and phobias.

Psychological Assessment/Testing For Children And Adults

Psychological Assessment/Testing For Children And Adults

Compass Health Network offers psychological assessments and testing for a wide range of issues.

Our licensed psychologists will use their expertise to select the right assessment and testing tools to meet your individual needs. This could include:

LEARNING DISABILITY EVALUATIONS
Learning Disability Evaluations assist in identifying whether or not a child (or adult in college or vocational rehabilitation) has a learning disability, and if so, in what area.

AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER ASSESSMENTS
Autistic Spectrum Disorder Assessments are used to identify the presence or absence of a diagnosis that falls on the Autistic Spectrum, including Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Assessments of this nature will include treatment recommendations and/or referral sources.

DIAGNOSTIC CLARIFICATION EVALUATIONS
Diagnostic Clarification Evaluations help assist in clarifying the diagnosis of an individual and make recommendations for treatment, for example, ADHD evaluations. These can also be used to assist in the development of IEPs, behavior modification programs, and more tailored treatment options.

PARENTAL CAPACITY ASSESSMENTS
Parental Capacity Assessments are NOT custody assessments. These only speak to a client’s ability to parent their child, including where they struggle and what improvements they can make, as well as what they are doing well.

Psychiatry: Telehealth Services

Psychiatry: Telehealth Services

The ground-breaking telecommunication allows you and your psychiatric provider to be in different places and still see each other face to face. This provides you an opportunity to go to a clinic close to you and see your provider of choice on a regular basis. Through telehealth, you can receive initial consultations, clinical services, and medication management without having to drive hundreds of miles or take hours out of your day.

Similar to a FaceTime or Skype experience, you and your psychiatric provider will talk to each other over a secure network through a large monitor equipped with a camera and microphone.

Compass Health Network uses technology to provide increased access to our team of experienced psychiatric providers.

Psychiatry For Children And Adults

Psychiatry For Children And Adults

Every individual receiving psychiatric services needs an assessment by a psychiatrist or psychiatric advanced practice nurse. This assessment is used to determine both the need for medication and the management of the medication regimen. Compass Health Network can provide this assessment along with:

  • Education regarding the effects of the medication and its relationship to the person’s behavioral health disorders
  • Prescription of medications
  • Ongoing monitoring of the medication’s effects

Medications can be the foundation of treatment for many people struggling with mental health challenges and are often the treatment of choice for persons with serious brain disorders such as severe and persistent mental illness. For adults and children battling depression, attention deficient disorders, anxiety, grief, or addictive disorders, medications may bring relief to some (or all) of the symptoms he or she is experiencing.

Psychiatry: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Psychiatry: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

What is rTMS?
The rTMS stands for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is not a completely new technology. It has been used in research, scientific fields, and in the field of neurosurgery for quite a long time.
It is used to treat patients with depression who are not responding to medications alone in an adequate manner.

What is it licensed for?
It is an approved treatment for major depressive disorder. Some of the other experimental indications for rTMS include treatment resistant OCD, hallucinations, and seizure disorders. However, major depressive disorder is currently the most established psychiatric indication. It is also used for mapping the brain during surgical procedures and during research.

Is it suitable for everyone?
Like any other treatment, it is not suitable for everyone, and your physician, with your help, can make that decision. It is not suitable for people with certain type of magnetic materials implanted in their body due to risks with magnetic field. It is not generally suitable for people with seizures.

How is it given?
It is an office based procedure that is administered 5 times a week. Patients can drive themselves to the office, and it is administered by either the treating physician or the appropriately trained TMS technician. At the first visit, provider will establish the parameters of treatment such as the strength of the magnetic field required, width and frequency of the magnetic pulse, and the position of the magnetic coil. After the initial visit, magnetic coils can be placed in the preset position and treatment administered on a daily basis. Each treatment session lasts between 10-30min based on various parameters. Patients can drive home after the procedure. Sessions are generally limited to around 30 minutes and modified based on response.

How does it work?
Magnetic fields induced by coil generate small electric signals in the brain matter underneath the coil. These electrical signals modify the connections between neurons and this in turn improves the mood.

Potential complications and side-effects of TMS
Common but mild side-effects include headaches, discomfort at the site of coil placement, and discomfort due to clicking noise produced by the machine. Rare side-effects may include seizures. It is very uncommon for this to happen and may result in termination of further sessions. Seizure risk from rTMS is similar to antidepressant therapy.

What next?
rTMS is a time limited therapy. Your provider will discuss with you regarding longer term plan of medication management as well.
Occasionally some patients are given maintenance sessions where rTMS is continued for much longer than the usual 30+ sessions depending on the individual needs.

Secret Financial Escape Plan
Steps to quietly build a credit history
https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/secret-financial-escape-plan-domestic-violence-victims-2014-12-29

If you know a friend of loved one who is being abused, consider taking these steps:

Set up a time to talk. Try to make sure you have privacy and won’t be distracted or interrupted. Let her know you’re concerned about her safety.
Be supportive. Listen to her. It may be very hard for her to talk about the abuse. Tell her that she is not alone and that people want to help.
Offer specific help. You might say you are willing to just listen, to help her with child care, or to provide transportation, for example.
Keep in mind that you can’t “rescue” your friend. She has to be the one to decide it’s time to get help. Support her no matter what her decision.
Let your friend know that you will always be there no matter what.
