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.

Treatment Plan elements
This one-on-one service helps decrease distress, reduce psychological symptoms, and improve positive behaviors.
Medical services include psychiatric assessment, medication needs and ongoing medication follow-up. The medical team works in partnership with the treatment team to ensure coordination and positive outcomes. When medication is indicated as part of treatment, our medical providers will prescribe them.
Led by a therapist or group leader, participants learn new ways to manage problems. In group therapy, participants work to improve their skills in a variety of areas, including self-esteem, communication, problem-solving and teamwork.
Functional Support Services
Functional Support Services are provided in the community, at home, or in other daily settings. This community-based service helps the individual learn and practice new skills where they live, work and play.
