An unfortunate outcome of chronic mental health can be a person’s inability to complete day-to-day tasks on their own, including holding employment. Independent living can take a hit when mental illness takes over one’s life. Here at Bear River Mental Health, we have residential/housing services that give those struggling a safe place to go when things get tough.
We have a 12-bed, short-term residential facility located in Logan near the Bear River House. This allows us to provide temporary housing for our eligible clients as well as access to psychosocial rehabilitation. Access to housing during mental health crises can be invaluable, which is why we offer this service for those who have difficulty living independently or who need more help than can be provided through standard treatment. Residential group home treatment is mostly for those with Medicaid, who are not experiencing a housing crisis and might benefit from a period of more constant care.
In most cases, mental health conditions can be treated by our providers through outpatient treatment, including individual and group therapy. However, there are times when a more intensive option is best. In these cases, our residential group home is a 24/7 program that serves as a transitional service between levels of care. Those living in the facility usually benefit from increased contact with treatment professionals.
Some mental health conditions or serious addictions simply cannot be treated without intensive, 24-hour care. While some people may find it difficult to leave their homes to live in a mental health facility, there are benefits to having access to help and treatment when it is needed most.
Because our residential facility is located near the Bear River House, our clients have access to a range of services while staying in the group home. Some of those services include the following:
In addition to Bear River Mental Health’s residential facility, eligible clients may be able to access semi-independent housing options. While in the group home, as our clients demonstrate improved stability in their mental health functioning, they may have access to a semi-independent apartment that is managed and operated by staff. This allows continued opportunities of personal growth with the possibility of more contact with staff, while achieving higher levels of independence.
If you feel that you or a loved one is in need of residential treatment, contact Bear River Mental Health. Our providers will work with you to determine the best next steps.
