Working to Create a Plan Tailored to You

We offer a variety of services, and one of the most important services is Crisis Intervention. Someone from our team will come out and assist you and your family when someone is in need of help. This is crucial because due to the person’s mental illness, they may be resistant towards seeking help on their own. We’re also here to continue with care through our coaching and counseling sessions to help people learn how to manage their mental illness and live the life they deserve.

Counseling & Mentoring

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), roughly one in five American adults deal with some form of mental illness. Depression affects about 7% of U.S. adults, and anxiety overwhelmingly affects 19% of people. Although there has been a growing movement for mental health awareness, there are many people who don’t seek help. Our goal is to make our services accessible and be able to educate people on the benefits of counseling and coaching. 

Counseling and mentoring help people address their issues and learn better ways to cope with the everyday struggle of life. It’s also important to understand that untreated mental health issues are a leading cause of substance abuse. When we’re able to assist our clients with discovering the root of the challenges they’re facing, the positive effects can ripple through other aspects of their life. There are many people who are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and other forms of mental illness who desperately want a change, and with our guidance, you can find a way out of the mental state you’re currently in. 

Our services not only help the affected person, but it also helps the loved ones of the individual. The right time to seek treatment is when a person is ready to change, but oftentimes, our intervention services can help a person see that there is hope to begin leading a better life. People often wonder how long counseling or coaching should last, and it depends on the person as well as their progress. The overall goal is for a person to acquire the skills and tools they need to live a happy, healthy life in a self-sufficient way. 

Counseling & Mentoring services provide assistance for our clients who are struggling with substance abuse or coping with various life issues. Individuals who are eager to learn new coping skills and are ready to work through the discomfort of modifying their behavior will benefit significantly. Chris Howard’s approach aims to empower our clients and foster resilience by identifying potential obstacles in recovery and forming an action-based treatment plan to elicit change.

Crisis Intervention

When you have a loved one struggling with symptoms of mental illness or a problem of substance abuse, it can be difficult to know what to do. Although you love and care for them, it’s difficult to watch them do harm to their life as well as the lives of others. You might be impacted by your loved one and have a hard time finding the boundary between helping and enabling. If this is the case, and you don’t know what to do, our team can assist you by providing crisis intervention. 

Crisis intervention services are needed when a person’s life has become unmanageable due to their mental illness or substance abuse, but they don’t want to get help. One of the most difficult parts of struggling with a psychological issue is that the person isn’t in the right state of mind. It takes qualified professionals and specific conversational techniques to influence a person to get the help that they so desperately need. If your loved one has reached this point, it’s important to remember that you’re dealing with a sick person, but our team can help. 

Someone from our crisis intervention team will meet with you or your family to understand the severity of the current situation and develop a plan for an intervention. We’ll help you learn the do’s and don’ts for helping your loved one get help. Once they choose to get help, they’ve made a courageous first step, and through our family therapy services, your entire family will be able to begin the healing process.

Concierge Crisis Intervention services have evolved to assist families, friends, and employers who are unable to effectively manage mental health issues that arise. The crisis is typically an unmanageable situation that may involve an individual or a group, which is in need of professional guidance to devise a concrete plan of action. Once one Chris Howard’s team members is able to identify and assess the crisis at hand, we will be able to tailor the appropriate intervention plan for you.

Family Support & Coaching

When a loved one takes steps towards improving their mental health or overcoming an addiction to drugs or alcohol, family support is crucial. While the individual’s issues are not necessarily the fault of the family or anyone else, recovery depends on the entire family working as a cohesive unit. Due to the nature of addiction, and the seemingly irrational behavior of someone with a mental illness, tensions can run high in a household. Utilizing family support services that are coordinated by a mental health professional gives the family an opportunity to begin the healing process.

Whether the person is your spouse, child, parent, or close friend, you can benefit from being involved in the family support process. When you’re in the midst of conflict, it can be difficult to see the situation from all angles. When working with a counselor, you get a new perspective on the situation, and they will help you begin learning healthy communication skills. You’ll learn to support one another, and for those trying to overcome addiction, you’ll gain tools to help keep the person accountable while also allowing them to maintain their independence. 

The length of family support therapy can vary depending on the situation. Early recovery from addiction can be a strenuous process, so it’s ideal for families to stay involved for the first few weeks or a couple of months as everyone adapts to the new environment. The overarching goal of this form of treatment is to provide families with the coping skills they need to create a healthy family dynamic and learn to support one another. 

Family Support services aid families in times of crisis and offer comprehensive support for transitions between mental health services. Family systems work demands a clear understanding of the underlying issues governing the interdependent relationships in the system. Therefore, Chris Howard and his team create a supportive and non-judgmental environment, which is utilized to inquire, challenge, and foster new attitudes, values, beliefs, and behavior within the family system, often resulting in new behaviors and insights.
