JFS helps individuals manage life transitions, resolve personal crises, learn new ways to behave more effectively, and cope with personal emotional upset and/or mental illness through a therapeutic relationship with trained mental health professionals. This service is based on a confidential individual mental health assessment to determine the appropriate treatment plan and goals.
Assistance is provided for daily activities, such as paying bills, doing chores, exercising or getting along with others. Most services are provided in community settings where problems may occur and support is needed rather than in staff offices or clinics.
JFS assists individuals with mental illness reduce or alleviate symptoms of psychiatric illness. Staff psychiatrists assess and prescribe medications. Psychiatric nurses are used when necessary and stack medications, monitor side effects, compliance, and provide medication education.
