How will I be involved in my treatment?
You will work with your assigned mental health professional to develop a treatment plan. This plan will include what you and your clinician (or treatment team) will do together to meet your treatment goals and will take into consideration your strengths, abilities and preferences. You will also begin planning for discharge when you plan your treatment. You and your clinician will discuss how you will know you are doing better and no longer need services. Also, your clinician will help you identify when additional services (or fewer services) may be necessary. If services are for your child, then your child may also be involved in planning treatment (depending on his/her age)
Treatment is a partnership between you and your clinician or treatment team. All partners work together to help you or you and your family achieve your goals.
