Preventative medical services are easily the most efficient manner in reducing health care costs. By expanding its services to include an Assertive Outreach Team, Valley Mental Health, Inc. has begun supporting the community’s individuals at any time, regardless of location. Organized, accessible, and quality health care concerning the behavioral, physical, and psychological aspects of life is what this private, non-profit group offers to adults and children in the Salt Lake City area.
Supporting the community means serving the persons who comprise the families, companies, and organizations that are the life-blood in the veins of Salt Lake City. Reducing the barriers that stand between medical professionals and those in need means facilitating access to services and information. By making these services mobile, Valley Mental Health can respond immediately, thereby reducing long-term hospitalizations, the intensity of acute symptoms, and the time to reach full recovery.
The same care that is offered for those needing inpatient and residential services is now available in an outpatient capacity. Medication management and psychosocial rehabilitation is available for those dealing with debilitating illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, and more. Specialized services are available for youth, regarding the needs of those with autism or daily care.
There is a direct correlation between the duration of time before reaching a positive prognosis and the expense to the individual and community. The intensive wrap-around services now provided by Valley Mental Health, Inc. for adults and children will improve the quality of life and decrease the avoidable financial burdens for the community. It is these teams we have to thank, which include the case managers, social workers, therapists, medical staff, and peer specialists, for this wonderful addition to the already powerful services provided by this amazing company.
Valley Mental Health has been in operation since 1987, serving Tooele, Summit, and Salt Lake counties with comprehensive treatment plans and services for the community, regardless of age or need. Mental illness, behavioral modification, and substance abuse intervention and rehabilitation are among the services provided by this reputable and long-time company in our community.
