Social, Recreational and Vocational Services – Adults

At South County Mental Health Clinic, we’re all about improving a client’s quality of life. And that

skills, prevocational training, and social growth opportunities for clients who are severely and

  • Our day services include a robust substance abuse component to help provide the
    information and skills necessary to help prevent drug or alcohol problems.
  • At the SCMHC Activities Center, your loved one can enjoy the give-and-take of social
    relationships and expression by participating in a variety of events and guided exercises.
Crisis Stabilization Units – Adult Services
Our crisis stabilization facility for adults provides short-term, acute residential treatment for those with severe psychiatric, emotional or behavioral problems. We provide a safe and therapeutic environmentvin order to bring stability to situations needing immediate attention.

Our state-licensed therapy programs are specially designed for clients with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse treatment needs.

Assertive Community Treatment Team – Adult Services
The South County Mental Health Center’s assertive community treatment team responds to those mentally ill clients who have demonstrated a high need for services, which are provided as intensively as needed.

Our case managers on the team deal with a smaller-than- usual caseload so that they can focus on these intense-need clients with the goal of preventing hospitalization and sustaining the client in the community.

To ensure success, the SCMHC treatment team coordinates a client’s care with other providers to ensure optimal support and services in the realms of physical health, social services, vocational training, residential services and economic support.

Targeted Case Management Services – Adults
We offer targeted case management services to adults suffering from severe and persistent mental illness. These South County Mental Health Center case managers develop service plans, identify and link with needed resources, and serve as a client’s advocate within the community.
Residential Services – Adults
At South County Mental Health Center, our residential services for adults offers varying levels of care designed to best prepare each client to achieve their optimum level of independent living. This ranges from fully supervised residential care to independent community living.

The NAVIGATE Program provides Palm Beach County residents between the ages of 16 and 34 early treatment of psychosis. NAVIGATE is a Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC)  team approach that provides medication management, therapeutic education, family and peer support, assistance with education and employment goals and case management.

The NAVIGATE Program was developed with the support from NIMH and has been implemented at over 60 sites throughout the U.S. as well as in China, Canada, and Israel. The program is named “NAVIGATE” to convey our mission of helping individuals with a first episode of psychosis and their families to successfully find their way to psychological and functional well-being, and to access the services they need in the mental health system.
