Community Based Services (CBS) at Ellie are Medicaid-funded state-regulated programs that work with individuals with significant mental health concerns. Services are often provided in the client’s home or within their community. The programs are designed to assist clients in achieving the greatest level of independence, through managing mental health symptoms using highly collaborative skill-based interventions. In order to qualify for Ellie’s CBS program, individuals must have a Medical Assistance (MA) or Prepaid Medical Assistance (PMAP) Insurance Plan.

In-Home Therapy

In-Home Therapy services are provided in a client’s home or community to break down barriers of significant mental health symptoms and socio-economic limitations.

We work with a variety of issues with people of all ages.

ADULT REHABILITATIVE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES (ARMHS)

ARMHS is a skills-based program focusing on assisting clients in learning coping skills to manage mental health symptoms. An ARMHS practitioner works one-on-one with individuals to create goals that help them restore functioning in areas that have been impacted by mental health symptoms. ARMHS practitioners meet with clients when it is mosteffective, at their home or in the community. ARMHS practitioners focus on four main areas: basic living skills, community intervention, medication management, and transitioning to community living. The main goal of ARMHS is to gain and maintain independence. ARMHS services are collaborative, innovative, and unique to every individual!

Community Intervention

Our innovative interventions reduce our clients’ barriers to independent living and minimize their risk of hospitalization or being placed in a more restrictive living arrangement. We include real stakeholders (relatives, guardians, friends, employers, landlords, treatment providers, or other significant people in our client’s life) into our approach when necessary to improve outcomes and allow the client to function more independently.

Transitioning to Community Living

We know that sometimes clients move from an in-patient facility or programming and need extra support so they effectively transition into the community. We provide creative skills solutions and strategies that set the client up for success in their transition.

Living & Social Skills

We coach and model activities that instruct, assist, and support our clients in skill areas essential for every day, independent living.

Medication Education

We believe that knowledge is power. Medication education helps clients, families, or significant others in the correct procedures for maintaining a prescription medication regimen.

LGBTQIA+ ARMHS PROGRAM

Ellie staff have specialized training to better the services they provide clients who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We cater our ARMHS services to meet the unique needs of this population and strive to help our clients towards better outcomes. With a greater understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community and the difficulties this community may face, we find it to be extra important that our program and staff be knowledgeable, compassionate, and understanding when working with our LGBTQIA+ clients as a part of our ARMHS program.

Children's therapeutic services and supports (CTSS)

CTSS is a combination os psychotherapy and rehabilitative skills work to support children and their families in managing mental health symptoms. A CSS therapist works with the child and caregivers to process emotions and conflicts, while a CTSS skills provider supports child and caregiver in learning and practicing the skills to manage behavior and cope. Both therapy and skills services are provided where they are most effective for the client and family, often at school, at home, or in the community. The unique combination of therapy and skills work helps children and families develop understanding and skills in areas such as anger, aggression, following directions, trauma responses, relating to peers, anxiety, depression, family conflicts and much more.
