Our teams are focused on six projects across our region, with the goal of improved mental and physical wellness.

Workforce Development

Workforce Development will focus on educating, recruiting, training, and retaining staff in the behavioral health field.  Through these efforts we will increase access to services needed for the region’s residents, as well as build career and educational pipelines for those already in the field.

Health Information Technology

Our team is working to develop the HIT infrastructure required to support high quality, integrated care throughout our region and state.  Through the assessment of HIT infrastructure gaps, we identify both local and statewide HIT infrastructure requirements that meet our regions needs through the integration of collaborative health-information technology.

Integrated Healthcare

Our enhanced delivery system effectively and efficiently prevents, treats, and manages acute and chronic behavioral health and physical illnesses across multiple providers and sites of service.  Our efforts are focused on reducing avoidable acute care admissions, and measurably improving the health status for Medicaid beneficiaries and other state residents.

Care Transitions

Using the Critical Time Intervention (CTI) model, this program supports people with serious mental illness and/or substance misuse disorders  as they transition from different life changes such as moving back home after a hospital stay, rejoining our community after being released from incarceration as well as youth moving from the child serving care system to the adult serving care system.

Partial Hospitalization Program

In order to increase our region's capacity of behavioral health and substance abuse services we've created a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Serenity Place to meet the needs of those for whom outpatient counseling is not effective but inpatient/residential is too restrictive.  The program will run 5 days a week (M-F), up to 20 hours per week, and provide assessment, treatment and education of adult patients, as well as coordinate treatment with agencies and organizations for the delivery of psychiatry and medical care.

Integrated Treatment of Co-Occurring Disorders

Working in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University’s Center for Evidence Based Practice, our team of experts can assess an agency’s program structure and services aimed at treating individuals who experience both a mental health and substance use issues. We work intensively with partner agencies who provide primary behavioral health and substance use care.  We provide evidence based training to all N4H partners to enhance identification and care of these individuals.
