Mental health issues are different for everyone. With the unique needs of our patients in mind, our adult program offers a variety of services tailored to your individual situation. Imagine hearing voices in your head as soon as you wake up each day. Or feeling so depressed for months, and even years, on end…that you can’t get out of bed or leave your home.
People in our communities live with serious mental illnesses that prohibit them from living lives that so many of us take for granted. Without help, holding down a job is impossible. Maintaining a home and stable relationships is implausible. Living a productive, fulfilling life is improbable.
With the appropriate treatment and support, people with mental illness can—and do—recover. Lakes Region Mental Health Center works with adults with a serious mental illness who meet the State’s eligibility criteria. Services are prescribed by our medical staff and based upon the patient’s needs. Working with the individual and, if appropriate, the family, we create a treatment plan. Using a diverse selection of our services is your best tool as you begin your path to recovery. Those elements are outlined below.
“oNCE yOU CHOOSE HOPE, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE”

Job Link, the Supported Employment program at Lakes Region Mental Health Center, is a service that assists individuals with all aspects of work from building confidence, creating a resume, interviewing, job retention, and more.
