Counseling & Community Services are provided in a variety of locations, including: in one of Bellefaire's offices, in a client's home, in the community, and in the school. It is our philosophy that children and teens respond best when they are treated in a familiar environment where parents, siblings, guardians, teachers, and other significant people are able to collaborate.
Professionally-licensed staff members, with degrees in psychology, social work, counseling and other human service fields, provide services ranging from outpatient counseling for individuals and families to intensive community-based treatment programs that address more specific problems, such as a homeless teen program to an intervention and a substance abuse prevention program for high school students.
Psychological testing and evaluation are provided to clients to assess which treatment options are the most appropriate. Testing and evaluation will:
- Determine the presence or absence of a specific mental health condition.
- Examine cognitive abilities.
- Determine the level of academic skills.
- Formulate treatment needs and strategies most likely to help the client.
- Document changes in cognitive, academic or emotional functioning.
Bellefaire's Intake Department staff is trained to work with families and referral sources to make a clinical assessment of needs, evaluate appropriateness for programs, and assist with the entire admission process.
