Spotlight on Success

East Valley Mental Health Outpatient Clinic

Through the EHN mental health outpatient clinics, El Paso residents have access to mental health care at several different locations throughout the city. Andrew Leal says his doctor’s appointments, regular visits with his caseworkers and regulation of his medication has made a difference in his life. “It has provided stabilization through medicine prescriptions to treat my (bipolar) condition. My caseworker has been a blessing, helping me to better understand my diagnosis and develop coping strategies to deal with symptoms.”

“Our mental health professionals at EHN are committed to helping those in our community to ensure their needs are at the center of care,” said Kristi Daugherty, EHN Chief Executive Officer. “Having a mental illness is like other medical conditions, meaning treatment for that condition is vital and we want our community to know there are resources available in our area to get the help they need.” Andrew agrees, “Our community needs to know that these conditions can happen to anyone and are not always obvious, they vary by person. We need to work harder to lessen the stigma and increase the understanding of mental illness and more importantly increase awareness that treatment is so important. For me, learning coping techniques have helped. Developing stress relief methods, finding which activities or methods were most therapeutic and utilizing them more. My relapses and crisis episodes have become fewer and easier to handle.”

It is very important,” said Padilla. “I would recommend people in the community take advantage of these programs, so they can better themselves, no matter the circumstances.”

The Recovery Based Outpatient Care is provided by Outpatient Treatment Teams located at the clinics.
