Meridian Services is a primary resource for the care of adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Because individuals with these illnesses typically have a variety of needs, Meridian Services has developed a coordinated and through system of treatment, outreach, case management, residential and vocational services, all tailored to each person's life.
Individuals become more independent and self-reliant through individual and group treatment sessions, self-directed activities, classes, and peer discussions.
Meridian Services operates a continuum or programs which can offer a place to live and the level of help and support needed. For persons who need 24 hour supervision, Meridian Services operates residential services and a sub-acute program. For clients who need daily contact, Meridian Services operates an Assertive Community Treatment Program in which case managers assist clients 7 days a week. For those who need less contact, Meridian Services offers assistance which supports independence to people who live in apartments.
Through Case Management Services, clients work with trained professionals who become the helpers, service brokers and advocates to help families and clients navigate the system to meet their needs and receive appropriate services. Case Management Services also are extended to persons who are homeless or about to be homeless and are mentally ill. These occur through the Homeless Project and Drop-In Center.
Meridian Services' Employment Service assists people in obtaining employment. Following a period of training and preparation, clients are helped to secure a job and are provided with the job coaching necessary to assist them in maintaining their employment. – less–ZoomInfo
