SERVICES FOR ADULTS
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.
Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT)
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.
Health Home Services
Unison Health is certified as a State of Ohio Medicaid Health Home. Adults with a severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) are cared for by a team of professionals who will manage and guide their care including: connecting to doctors, dentists, and counselors; addressing addiction and mental health concerns; helping clients get regular tests and understand the results; and helping doctors better understand what each client needs. There is no additional cost for this care. Medicaid Health Home services are covered under current Medicaid plans.
Administered by licensed professionals, Unison Health provides in depth psychological assessments, including but not limited to: intelligence testing and personality assessments. Clinical data is organized and interpreted to answer the referral question(s).
We offer medical services and medication management for adults, children and adolescents as related to their behavioral health disorder.
Current clients of Unison Health have access to licensed professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This program is an alternative to hospitalization for adults experiencing psychiatric crisis. The program helps individuals in crisis begin to stabilize, regain hope, interrupt unhealthy patterns, learn new coping mechanisims, and remove barriers to recovery. We provide daily intensive support and treatment, including art therapy and psychoeducation with a strong emphasis on empowerment and improved quality of life, in a group setting. To be eligible, adults must reside in Lucas County, have a serious mental illness, and have an open case with a community mental health center.
SERVICES FOR CHILDREN
Child and Family Therapy Services Program
At Unison Health, we recognize that most families want to stay together. By building on the family’s strengths, we can make that happen. The Child and Family Therapy Program works with families just like yours, helping maintain, support and preserve the family unit. By creating significant positive changes, your strengthened family will be better equipped to remain intact, safely and securely.
Children ages 5-17 with a mental health diagnosis are eligible, as well as family members with mental health symptoms that impact family functioning. In addition to helping young people navigate life’s emotional challenges, the program benefits children in foster care, and even those in jeopardy of being removed from their home or school setting.
Early Childhood Mental Health Therapy
Unison Health’s Early Childhood Mental Health Therapy team is committed to supporting the parents and guardians of young children. That’s why we offer treatment services, including individual therapy and family therapy, as well as parenting groups for children age 0-5.
Children often need help coping with difficulties such as divorce or other life adjustments. Other children and families may be struggling with more serious issues, such as abuse, neglect, or severe emotional disorders. Any of these children may benefit from Early Childhood Mental Health Therapy. Whether the children are at risk for out-of-home placement, or are already in placement outside their homes, these treatment services can help facilitate successful reunification with their families.
Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation
If you’re caring for a child who is struggling in his or her childcare center, Unison Health’s Early Childhood Mental Health (ECMH) program provides consultative services that can truly help. The target population is children ranging from 0-5 years old and is open to children attending day care or preschool in Lucas, Sandusky, and Seneca counties.
This initiative is funded by the State of Ohio through their Whole Child Matters Grant and was started in an effort to reduce the rate of kindergarten suspensions.
Is your child having difficulty regulating his or her feelings or behavior—or showing signs of depression, anxiety, ADHD or other disruptive behavioral concerns? Our school-based programming can help improve classroom performance and encourage emotional self-control. By helping your child identify their interests and abilities, and develop their organizational skills, we can help them develop decision-making and conflict-resolution skills that utilize individual strengths.
This programming runs on the Toledo Public School calendar and is offered in a number of schools, 5 days per week. Office-based services are also available when school is closed.
For children in need of psychological evaluation, neuropsychological evaluation, or for adults who need assistance with a child’s diagnosis, Unison Health’s Psychology Department offers a wide range of testing. Some restrictions may apply; please consult with a Unison Health representative for more information.
For children age 3-18 who can benefit from medication in the treatment of an identified psychiatric disorder, Unison Health offers a medication management program. Young people who present with symptoms consistent with a psychiatric disorder can receive the necessary evaluation and continuous monitoring necessary to ensure optimal results.
Never lose hope.
Your child’s behavioral health is essential! Contact Unison Health today at 419-214-HOPE to learn more about these services.
