Spotlight on Success

EHN Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Waiver

Spotlight on Success Story Iris Hernandez

Emergence Health Network provides mental health services for children and adolescents ages 3 -1 7 who suffer from a variety of emotional disturbances. The Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Waiver focuses on children who have a serious functional impairment or acute severe psychiatric symptoms. “Before services at EHN, I was constantly self-harming and attempting suicide,” said Iris Hernandez. “Once I started receiving services I began to realize what the real problem was and I have changed in a very positive way.  I don’t hurt myself anymore because I know I don’t need to and I don’t want to.”

The goal of the YES Waiver Program is to provide the complete continuum of care and support for the child and their family.  The community-based services allow for more flexibility in the funding of the services and help in situations where parents have turned to state custody for care when they feel they have reached or exceeded their financial, emotional or health care support resources and are unable to cover the costs of their children’s mental health treatment.

“Dealing with a mental illness isn’t easy.  Don’t assume any of this is something to just get over because I promise you it’s so much more complex than you think or know, added Hernandez.  “You have to keep fighting.  It’s a battle but you can overcome this. It is possible with the right help.”

Crisis Extended Observation Unit

Extended Observation Unit

Emergence Health Network (EHN) opened its Extended Observation Unit in 2014 and since then many El Pasoans have received the help needed to stabilize them through a mental health crisis.

“I was going through a crisis but for me and others who suffer from a mental illness the crisis sometimes gets overwhelming and we don’t have the coping skills to handle it properly,” said Nogoni Griffith. “I have learned over the years that strength comes from asking, asking for help and that is what I did I reached out and asked for help.”

EHN qualified mental health professionals at the 11-bed facility to provide care 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.  Residents can receive immediate, face-to-face counseling, crisis intervention and up to 48 hours of observation until the client is stabilized. The staff then links individuals to services in the community for continued treatment towards long-term recovery.

“The purpose of the EOU is to provide people who need help, who need to be stabilized who are suffering from a mental crisis and they need to be surrounded by people who understand their condition and who can help them,” added Griffith. “Here, you are surrounded by people who care, who have a big heart and just want you to get better and return to functioning. So I believe EHN is a great asset to this community.”

Did you know that Emergence Health Network offers a Coordinated Specialty Care Program for First Episode Psychosis?  First episode psychosis simply refers to the first time someone experiences symptoms. Of the majority of people who experience psychosis, the first symptoms typically occur between the ages of 16 and 25, yet it is common for a person to have the symptoms for several months, sometimes more than a year before receiving treatment. However, reducing this time of untreated psychosis is important for a better recovery.
