COMPREHENSIVE CLINICAL ASSESSMENT (CCA)  

We are well aware that the children, adolescents, adults, and families we serve present with behavioral and emotional health needs that are multifaceted and complex in nature. That is why CareLink use a process of comprehensively assessing the multiple areas of an individual’s life before moving forward with clinical planning and treatment. This process is known as the assessment phase of treatment, an intensive clinical and functional evaluation of an individual’s present mental health, developmental, and/or substance abuse condition. The CCA identifies the emotional and behavioral health challenges clients are facing and the areas of life where they are having difficulty (family, school, work, community, physical health, etc) The history of emotional or behavioral concerns, and any prior treatments that have been attempted. A client’s natural strengths and available supports for dealing with challenges and crises. This combination provides the foundation for clinical planning.

Residential Supports

Assistance Family Living

Host Family/Shared Living Services assist a person served to find a shared living situation in which he/she is a valued person in the home and has supports as desired to be a participating member of the community. An organization may call these services a variety of names, such as host family services, shared living services or supports, alternative family living, structured family caregiving, family care, or home share.

Getting the person in the right match is a critical component to successful host family/shared living services. The organization begins by exploring with the person served what constitutes quality of life for him/her and identifies applicant providers who are a potential match with the person’s identified criteria. The person served makes the final decision of selecting his or her host family/shared living provider.

Safety, responsibility, and respect between or among all people in the home are guiding principles in these services. Persons are supported to have meaningful reciprocal relationships both within the home, where they contribute to decision making and the community. The service provider helps the person served to develop natural supports and strengthen existing networks. Relationships with the family of origin or extended family are maintained as desired by the person served. The provider supports the emotional, physical, and personal well- being of the person.

Persons develop their personal lifestyle and modify the level of support over time if they so choose. The provider encourages and supports the person served to make his/her own decisions and choices. The host family/shared living provider does not necessarily have to be a family, as it could be an individual supporting the person. In this program description and these standards, the provider refers to the individual(s) supporting the person served. Although the “home” is generally the provider’s home or residence, it may also be the home of the person served.

Some examples of the quality results desired by the different stakeholders of these services and supports include:

  • Quality of life as identified by the person served is enhanced.

Rehabilitative Services

Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR)

“Refind My Design”
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Programs are designed to help adults with behavioral health challenges increase their ability to live independently, minimizing their need for ongoing professional intervention. We help people set and pursue their own personal goals and implement steps to better manage their illness and their everyday lives. Self-advocacy, management of personal care and daily living, pre-vocational activities, and supported employment are just some of the features our PSR can offer.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation is designed to help persons to optimize their personal, social, and vocational competency in order to live successfully in the community. Activities are determined by the needs of the persons served, the persons served are active partners in all aspects of these programs. Therefore, the settings can be informal in order to reduce barriers between staff members and program participants. In addition to services provided in the home or community, this program may include a psychosocial clubhouse, a drop-in center, an activity center, or a day program.
