Individual counseling is an alternative to group therapy. The client meets one on one with a licensed mental health professional for a designated period of time. A rapport and trust is developed that allows individuals to better understand themselves and their problems in order to successfully manage their lives. Individual counseling can be provided in our office or in a community setting.

This intensive community-based psychiatric program serves the Lucas County Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity (NGRI) population. Clients with significant mental health needs can also access the program. The PACT program consists of case management, health home services and nursing services.
Specialized Group Therapy
We bring together specialized groups composed of individuals with similar issues such as depression or grief. Group therapy affords these individuals the opportunity to see that they are not alone. Under the direction of a Unison Health therapist, the group gives support and offers alternatives, and helps clients learn productive and beneficial behaviors in a climate of trust. Here, people feel free and meet their goals.
Home Choice is a collaborative program involving Unison Health, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and the Ohio Department of Mental Health. The goal is to help long-term nursing facility residents transition to less restrictive, community-based housing such as apartments and group homes. Residents do not have to be a current Unison client to qualify. Unison Health employs two Home Choice Transition Coordinators who help residents obtain benefits, locate and apply for housing, shop for moving necessities such as furniture and household supplies, link with community resources, including medical, and facilitate the actual move. Community Coaches and Life Skills Specialists are available for 365 days after moving.
