Levels of Care
Medication Management Services are offered in conjunction with inpatient and outpatient treatment, as well as a stand-alone level of care, provided by our full-time psychiatric Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN).
Medications, such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, stimulants, and antipsychotics are specifically selected to treat target symptoms of an illness. These medications impact the brain and central nervous system, changing the way your brain sends messages between cells.
Because each person’s response to medication is unique, it is important to develop a relationship with a provider who is proficient with pharmacological interventions and focused on patients being actively involved in their own care. Our APRN brings extensive experience and compassion to each patient’s care.

Our Behavioral Health Outpatient Services strive to empower patients to manage and address their own symptoms. Through treatment, patients will learn to understand themselves better and develop insight into others around them as well.
Children will increase respect for their parents. Spouses will increase their empathy for each other. Friends will change assumptions and have more compassion for what others are going through.
Our therapists provide individual, marriage, family, and group counseling. We promote personal growth and development of effective coping strategies to treat depression, grief, anxiety, addiction, trauma resolution, and eating disorders.

Additional Support Services
In order to meet the needs of those living in assisted living or long-term care who have mental health treatment needs, but are not able to travel to our facility, are not appropriate for our Intensive Outpatient Therapy Program (IOP) or have insurance that will pay for IOP, we have developed a program to provide them therapy “in-place” at their facilities.
Fillmore County Hospital (FCH) will provide a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP) or Licensed Mental Health Provider (LMHP) to facilitate group therapy and individual therapy on a set day each week at the designated facility. FCH will directly bill Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance for this treatment.
This partnership began in 2015 between FCH and Fillmore Central Public Schools. The shared vision included prevention and education, early identification and intervention, as well as treatment and ongoing support for our youth within the school setting. In addition, we wanted to create a collaborative approach where the student, school faculty, parents, and counselor could work together towards a common goal. The process includes parental approval and a confidential setting on school property for students to meet with their counselor. With this approach, students were able to address their mental health wellness, academic and behavioral challenges, and overall stressors at home, in the classroom, and socially with minimal time away from the classroom.
We have since partnered with Heartland Schools, Exeter-Milligan, and Sutton Public Schools, serving students in each of these systems. Counselors also provide student and faculty training on mental health related topics including conflict resolution, self-care, mental health first aid, training on adverse childhood experiences, parenting courses, suicide awareness and prevention trainings. If you are interested in this service, please talk with your school to determine whether this is the right fit for your child.
Take a course. Save a life. Strengthen your community.
Sometimes first aid isn’t a bandage or CPR. Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
Who should attend?
Anyone 18 or older can take a Mental Health First Aid Course, but it is recommended for those who are teachers, coaches, first responders, faith leaders and other caring citizens.
Learn how to help a friend, family members, coworker, or neighbor in need.

Children and teens with intellectual, physical, or speech-related limitations are more likely than the general population to experience stress and anxiety, or to develop other mental health issues such as depression, aggressive behaviors, and emotional withdrawal. Without appropriate intervention these issues can affect their overall quality of life, and often carry over into adulthood. Psychological assessment and therapy are provided in our program because of the possibility of related emotional or behavioral problems, and to promote success and emotional well-being.
