As part of the intake process, we request the clients permission to involve significant others in their treatment. We believe this is both important and beneficial as research and our experience indicates family involvement improves treatment outcomes. We welcome family members and significant others as active members of the treatment team. Family services at AMHP include:
- Consultation to family members prior to hiring our services.
- Acknowledgment of stigma regarding mental illness and support for families.
- Provide non-judgmental support, acknowledging there are many causes of mental illness.
- Realizing there are serious, often painful, issues for families with a mentally ill relative, we offer individual and family counseling.
