Gathering information about your loved one comes from a variety of sources: family members, friends, partners, employers, treatment professionals, and others. Together everyone paints a portrait of your loved one’s behavior so the group can make a clinical assessment based on a retrospective analysis. By obtaining a thorough psycho-social history combined with the generational map we can determine many complex factors, including if there is an underlying mental health disorder. This assessment helps form the blueprint for action.
Our team addresses the pain that the family and the person of concern has experienced. Stakeholders may elect to participate or not. It’s not always an easy decision, as interventions are incredibly emotionally taxing. The stakeholders are faced with the choice of progress and some hard work, or stagnation and further decline. This is often a turning point for loved ones. Participants often discover hope and optimism at this stage.
