In the world of behavioral health, we are often the blank slate that clients know very little about. We would like to take the opportunity to lift the curtain for a minute and talk about what we hope 2018 looks like for ABHS.
-Increased access to quality services for children, families, and adults: We’re working hard to ensure that we have qualified, well-trained, staff available to those who seek services from us. We’re expanding our staff to meet the needs of the greater community and to ensure that there are limited to no wait times for individuals to receive services. If someone is at the point that they need assistance, the last thing we want is to ask them to wait an excessive amount of time.
–Increased availability of programs to meet the needs of diverse individuals: We have no belief that outpatient counseling is a one-size fits all solutions. We are dedicated to increasing the flexibility of our service delivery model to help everyone find better outcomes. Whether that be through the coordination of medication management, ABA services, or telemedicine; ABHS is hopes to increase its programs this year to better serve whoever may need support
–Better collaboration: The best outcome in behavioral health is always achieved when there is a team of support surrounding a family. No one provider or agency can provide that alone. Our hope in this year is to continue building on our relationships in the community to ensure that we know of the best services available for clients, that we can work alongside other programs, and do our part to close gaps in the community.
What are your goals for 2018?
