Relationships can be hard, especially during stressful times. Family counseling is specialized counseling that helps family members resolve conflict and communicate more effectively. Depending on your family’s situation, the counseling sessions may include all family members or only the ones most directly involved.
RiverValley has a qualified network of caring clinical social workers and trained family counselors ready to help families function better at home.
Here are a few options:
Crisis & Information Line
RiverValley offers a free and anonymous call line for individuals in any type of crisis. This line can also be accessed via text and chat through RVBH’s web portal and is staffed around the clock with trained crisis call technicians to promptly address client needs.
Outpatient Mental Health
Outpatient simply refers to receiving treatment without being admitted into a hospital, usually within a clinic or office setting. To better serve our community, RiverValley has offices in almost every county in our region so we can offer counseling, evaluation, and a variety of services for all ages and issues close to home.
Intensive in-Home/Therapy Services (IIH)
Unlike traditional mental health services, IIH is administered in the client’s home instead of an office visit. Over the course of 6-18 weeks, RiverValley staff comes to the family’s home to provide services targeting four main areas: parenting education, relationship issues, family meeting facilitation, and group or individual counseling.
Peer Support Services
Sometimes it’s nice to hear from someone who’s been in our shoes because we can trust their lived experience. At RiverValley, we call that “peer support services.” These emotional supports are provided by someone living with a behavioral health disorder who shares what they’ve experienced with newly diagnosed adults, children, and families to help them on their journey toward social and personal change.
Mobile Crisis Team (MCT)
For individuals in a mental health or substance use related crisis that can’t get to RiverValley, a Mobile Crisis Team is ready to respond 24/7, 365 days a year. Our MCT is a highly trained team of clinicians, case managers, and peer support professionals that can assess, triage, and provide emergency services for all ages.
