Psychiatric Care Services

For some people—especially those living with chronic conditions, such as depression, mood disorders, and schizophrenia, the support of a therapist may simply not be enough. At Well Care Services, our psychiatric care services provide assessments, individualized treatment plans and ongoing expert care for patients with a range of mental health conditions. Our integrated systems modality includes direct access to a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who work seamlessly to develop an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

At Well Care Services, the first step in psychiatric care begins with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation. Performed by a psychiatrist, this initial examination is both psychological and medical in nature. Physicians at Well Care Services may ask for your physical, behavioral, relationship and cognitive histories, order lab tests or other medical exams. Once the comprehensive assessment is complete, our psychiatrists will work to formulate an assessment and recommend a treatment plan in conjunction with other members of the patient’s treatment team for continually treatment.  

Psychiatric medication coupled with proper medication management may be incorporated into your treatment plan. These medications can bring relief and added balance, but carry significant risks and side effects, which is why psychiatric medication management is important as part of your treatment and important to your well-being.

Case Management

Case management involves the collaborative process aimed at client wellness and autonomy through advocacy, assessment, planning, communication, education, resource management, and service facilitation. Its underlying premise lies in the belief that everyone benefits when clients reach their optimum level of wellness, management, and functional capability. As recognized experts in the care coordination team, case managers link clients with providers and resources within health and human services and therapeutic care settings. They ensure that the care being provided is safe, effective, timely, and centered on the client. 

In addition to the four definitions of “health” listed below, case management’s definition of health takes on a more comprehensive meaning that includes biopsychosocial, as well as educational and vocational, aspects of the client:

○ Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO Constitution).

○ The extent to which an individual or a group is able to realize aspirations and satisfy needs, and to change or cope with the environment. Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living; it is a positive concept, emphasizing social and personal resources as well as physical capabilities

○ A state characterized by anatomic, physiologic and psychological integrity; ability to perform personally valued family, work and community roles; ability to deal with physical, biologic, psychological and social stress; a feeling of well-being; and freedom from the risk of disease and untimely death.

○ A state of equilibrium between humans and the physical, biologic and social environment, compatible with full functional activity.

Housing

Well Care is committed to implementing solutions that prevent if not eliminate fragmented services for the patients that we serve. Our wrap around services include a short term housing component that is specifically designed for the purpose of transitioning our patients from an inpatient setting to the appropriate level of short term residential care, which allows our care management team a window of time to work with the patient in a sub–controlled environment to bring them to a place of stabilization. Within this window of time our efforts are focused on constructing the highest level of stability that will motivate the patient to begin working towards his/her long-term goals.
