A Depressed Man Speaking With Counselor

Mental Health Counseling

The Mobile Mental Health Program: Providing support to meet the changing emotional health care needs of our aging community.

Things that can happen as we get older – the loss of a spouse or child, changes in financial status or living situation, physical or other health challenges – can all affect someone’s quality of life and lead to a host of mental health concerns. Our specialized counselors can help.
Our program provides home-based counseling services to individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, mental illness and loss. Through telehealth, services can be easily provided in the privacy of your own home, and if indicated, occasional in-home assessments and counseling sessions can be arranged. Our clinicians bring a multi-modality approach to treatment and are specialized in treating the issues facing older adults, as well as providing trauma-informed care, and lifestyle approaches to emotional health management. They also bring a broad range of knowledge about other community services and supports to promote healthy aging.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Supportive telephone calls
  • One-on-one counseling in the privacy of your own home
  • Family counseling
  • Multi-disciplinary, non-emergency assessment
  • Referrals to services like home care, nutrition education and support, and to medical and other specialists.

Our clinicians are credentialed by several insurance companies which provide payment for services, and individualized financial coverage can be discussed with any client.

If you or someone you know is experiencing depression or feeling worried, anxious, or alone, our program can help.

It has received the Deirdre Johnston Award for Excellence and Innovation in Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Services from the American Association of Geriatric Psychiatry, which reported it as one of 16 promising programs selected nationwide.
