The Survivors Mental Health Program (SMHP) provides comprehensive mental health care to adult survivors of violence who have serious mental health problems. Services include:
- Individual therapy
- Crisis intervention
- Case management
- Medication evaluations
The program receives grant funding to help those who do not have health insurance and are not eligible for victim’s compensation to get the counseling services they need. SMHP keeps them from falling through the cracks of the existing mental health and victim services systems. Survivors of violence often experience:
- Post-traumatic stress
- Severe depression
- Suicidal impulses
SMHP is designed to specifically address these issues. A primary goal of SMHP is to help survivors stabilize and avoid the demoralizing and costly experience of being hospitalized.
