The JESPY clinical department is designed to assist clients in the process of leading healthy, fulfilled, and productive lives as well as help them address psychological issues that may hinder the process.
Goal-directed, therapeutic services and interventions are available for clients. Some clients receive short-term treatment that is geared toward their adjustment to new challenges and transitions or resolving issues. Other clients who may have complex emotional histories could require a continuation of their earlier treatment or long-term care.
Clinical service referrals are often initiated and established by case managers, a client’s self-advocacy or via insurance. Clients are matched with an onsite licensed mental health professional, or (if appropriate) with a provider in the vicinity of JESPY.
With each specific client’s care in mind, JESPY’s clinical teams maintains active communication throughout all JESPY House departments regarding the client’s progress and adaptations. This process enables the clinical team and each client to remain focused on achieving the client’s identified goals.
Staff within Clinical and Behavioral Supports are Licensed Mental Health clinicians and have extensive experience in counseling and clinical social work within the I/DD (Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities) community. In addition, a consulting psychologist is available as needed and a consulting psychiatrist is onsite regularly.
