Behavioral Health Program

WILLCARE’s Behavioral Health Program was created to meet the unique mental health needs of individuals living at home, so they can function independently in the community. This program addresses not only those with a primary mental health diagnosis, but also individuals struggling with a mental health issue in conjunction with a primary medical diagnosis. WILLCARE collaborates with the individual’s treatment team, combining support, education and therapeutic interventions with family and community resources, with the goal of restoring equilibrium and achieving higher levels of function at home.

This program helps reduce chronic hospitalization and the length of hospital stays, and improves medication/treatment compliance, using the following services:

  • In-hospital assessment prior to discharge
  • Post-hospital transition support
  • Assessment of individual’s mental status
  • Assessment of individual’s level of functioning in a community setting
  • Assessment of chemical dependency
  • Management of medication therapy
  • Education
  • Support for compliance
  • Administration of injectable medications
  • Monitoring of therapeutic lab values
  • Support in the home
  • Crisis intervention
  • Family education
  • Stress management/relaxation activities
  • Instruction in home management skills
  • 24-hour on-call coverage
