Mental Health Services
Families who have an individual with intellectual disabilities often experience ongoing stress. Aspects of the family’s life that may be impacted by a family member with autism include family recreation, finances, social relations with friends, relatives, spouses and neighbors, and the emotional, physical, and mental well-being of parents and siblings.
Community Psychiatric Support and Treatment Services
Eprine offers intensive in-home services which provide person-centered, family focused, comprehensive, and coordinated support to assist individuals who need supports at home. The goal is to reduce the use of psychiatric hospitalization and residential placement by offering the support needed to keep families intact. The ultimate goal of the program is family preservation. The target population is for individuals that live at home with natural parents, relatives or a legal guardian, or the family residence of the individual’s permanent or temporary situation. In addition, the individual must demonstrate a clinical necessity arising from a severe condition due to mental, behavioral or emotional illness that results in significant functional impairment in major life activities
Eprine offers Psychosocial Rehabilitation services which provide structured activities and on-going support and guidance toward meeting an individualized service plan (ISP) which includes independent living skills goals. Individual sessions are offered to address deficits in skills that are preventing the individual from functioning independently in the community as well as family education, as appropriate, to help strengthen communication, interactions and skills.
