Behavioral Health Services

TCV Community Services offers a variety of services for individuals experiencing difficulties related to mental illness.

Adult Mental Health Outpatient Programs

Outpatient services assist people with mental illness to gain an improved quality of life. This is done by helping individuals achieve and then maintain a decrease in distressing symptoms with an increase in coping and life-management skills. Services include:

  • Initial clinical assessment
  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Medication management
  • Individual, group and family psychotherapy

Outpatient therapists and case managers work closely with community resources and a variety of agency programs, such as Resource Coordination, Intensive Case Management, Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Supported Employment to coordinate care. Turtle Creek Valley also provides outpatient services to adolescents and children.

Community Residential Rehabilitation Services

Residential Services support adults with mental health needs, enabling them to live as independently as possible through the process of training and assistance in the skills of community living. Life skill assistance can be provided for a brief period or over an extended time and offers various levels of support. Based on the individual’s needs, services range from homes with 24-hour staff support to independent living with supported housing services. Specialized Community Living provides increased supports while living independently.

decision support services

Decision Support Center

The TCV  Psychiatric Shared Decision Support Center Best Practice Model (designed by Pat Deegan and Associates) was the first to open in Pennsylvania and the second in the United States.  It provides state of the art client-centered services that are integrated into an extended medical visit designed to illuminate client concerns and ambivalence about taking psychiatric medications.  Consumers are assisted by Peer Employees (who deeply understand the recovery process) to use touch screen computers and software ahead of time for the doctor’s visit.

The resulting report helps prescribers and consumers come to a shared decision about what the consumer will do to help themselves in addition to taking medication.

Diversion and Acute Stabilization Program (DAS)

The Diversion and Acute Stabilization Program (DAS) provides short-term residential and mental health treatment for adults 18 and older. The program provides an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, when symptoms have increased but do not require an inpatient stay. It also provides an interim level of care for persons being discharged from community inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, who need more structure and treatment before returning home.

DAS residential staff support individuals with daily living activities and medication/health needs and coordinate recreational opportunities. The program offers a structured residential treatment setting where individuals can make significant improvements in stability while developing the foundation for ongoing recovery.

Social Rehab Program

The Social Rehabilitation Service engages people in life in addition to class psycho-educational opportunities. We utilize best practices such as Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy approaches, WRAP, SAMHSA Wellness 10×10 Campaign and Illness Management and Recovery to help people identify their existing strengths in managing their wellness. In addition, we facilitate the transition from “talking about recovery” to living out a recovery vision. We help members define their strengths, learn to manage their whole health, learn new skills, increase confidence by being exposed to a variety of volunteer, leadership and pre-employment opportunities and create a culture of hope.

Staff and members create a clubhouse-like atmosphere that facilitates a sense of belonging, ownership and healthy connections. Members are actively involved in the design, development and management of the overall program. Our members are partners and leaders in the journey toward empowered and resilient living.
