Individuals who are diagnosed with severe mental illness have higher mortality rates associated with physical illness such as heart disease and diabetes. Family Service’s Nurse Navigator Program simultaneously addresses physical and mental health problems to improve health and long term outcomes for these individuals
What We Do
Our Nurse Navigators work one-on-one to help you:
- Connect with behavioral and physical healthcare services
- Better understand your medical and mental health issues
- Work with your other treatment providers and supports to coordinate care
- Develop and adhere to your comprehensive, integrated wellness plan
- Learn skills to become more independent with accessing healthcare
- Support you in achieving your goals
This time limited, recovery-focused program is delivered in three phases:
- Phase One: Outreach, engagement and assessment
- Phase Two: Implementation and monitoring of wellness plan
- Phase Three: Services provided as an as-needed basis
