Hamlin FCCS / Independent Living Services
Adult Field Capable Clinical Services (FCCS) is a new Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) program that provides specialized mental health services to consumers in the field where the client is. The program is for clients who are at risk of institutional placement, have difficulty stabilizing or engaging in traditional mental health services, are repeatedly in and out of hospitals and emergency rooms, and have difficulty meeting initial goals of mental health recovery. The multi-disciplinary team is staffed by professional, paraprofessional, and peer counseling staff working together to outreach and engage underserved, unserved, and inappropriately served clients toward stabilization and initial steps of recovery. The focus of FCCS also involves working with community partners to provide a wide range of needed clinical services offered in the field that are designed to initiate recovery. As the client breaks through initial blocks to treatment and engages in more recovery – oriented goals, the client is transitioned to other programs such as Wellness Centers in order to develop a foundation in recovery based services.
Services include outreach and engagement, field-based services and crisis support, comprehensive assessment, individual and family treatments, medication support, case management and linkage to other needed services, mental health support, money management/payeeships, group counseling, identifying and addressing immediate barriers to mental health recovery, transitions to longer term recovery-based services to help clients engage in meaningful activity, begin participating in or return to the workforce, resuming educational goals, and develop healthy social support networks
