Comprehensive Mental Health Services (CMHS) was recently awarded a $50,000 grant from Jackson County Community Mental Health Fund: Mental Health Levy to support rapid engagement and maintenance in mental health services.
This grant focuses on identifying mental health needs of clients, establishing individualized goals with each client, reducing barriers to engagement in mental health care, and engaging treatment staff and other significant persons involved with the client in the feedback on individual progress.
This program is designed to close the gaps between Jackson County’s Mental Health Courts (MHCs) and state-designated community mental health centers (CMHC) to: screen, assess, monitor, reduce barriers to engagement, and provide evidence-based services.
Comprehensive Mental Health Services (CMHS) has provided mental health services to all residents in northeastern Jackson County for over 40 years. The agency provides mental health services that are focused on the specific needs of the individual receiving services. CMHS assists clients in defining their own individual goals, and provides treatment to help clients achieve those goals. CMHS designs its services to maximize each client’s personal strengths while minimizing adverse behaviors and functional challenges.
