Spotlight on Success

Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACT)

Emergence Health Network (EHN) offers a variety of services to an individual with a mental health condition, including help from the EHN ACT Team.  ACT or the Assertive Community Treatment Team provides comprehensive psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support to individuals with a serve or persistent mental illness, or personality disorders with severe functional impairments.  The goal is to reduce the amount of time an individual has to spend in a psychiatric hospital and increase the quality of life for these individuals who typically have difficulty remaining in a community setting.

Frank Saenz has managed his mental illness since he was a child but recently began to isolate himself and would not sleep or eat.  One of his biggest challenges was not being able to cope with the voices he would hear in his head and in turn, would get angry.  That’s when Frank was transferred to the ACT Team and received aggressive intervention. Frank remembers the ACT team going to his house to help him. “They worked with me and encouraged me to go outside to play basketball. They would help me build puzzles, draw in a notebook and slowly I started to get better again.”

Frank has successfully remained out of the hospital for more than a year now and is doing much better.  He is socializing again, plays sports at a local recreation center, helps around the house with his family, and is more independent. “I feel happy and more motived to live my life,” said Frank. “This has been hard on me and my whole family but everyone from ACT and the nursing staff helped me.  They are friendly and made me feel comfortable.”

IDD Day Habilitation Learning Center

The EHN Day Habilitation location is a comprehensive Learning Center which allows EHN to provide services to its IDD clients at one centralized location. Recreational and pre-vocational activities are provided to help individuals such as Carlos Regalado, learn how to be more independent and active in the community.

Carlos’s mom says the staff at EHN has even helped her by giving her the support needed as a parent to assist a child with special needs. “My biggest challenge has been having to change my life to accommodate his, but I was surprised to find out that once he started at the EHN IDD DayHab Learning Center he was more independent than what I thought. I couldn’t imagine not having any services with EHN.  Everything that EHN does is very essential for my son’s life.”

The curriculum at the IDD Learning Center also includes life skills lessons to encourage independence. “We have an area at the center where our clients can learn how to do laundry, make their bed, or even make a sandwich.  This practice helps them to be self-sufficient, productive residents in our community in light of their diagnosis,” said Kristi Daugherty, CEO Emergence Health Network.   “Our clients can also move between classrooms where they are engaged in such courses as math, science, writing, dance and art classes throughout the day.”
