*** New July 20, 2013***
In response to President Obama's call for cities
to hold forums to discuss ways to address the current state of mental
health services and how to improve mental health services, a non-profit
professional group "Creating Community Solutions" came to Sacramento on
July 20th to facilitate just such a forum. About 350 people attended at
the Sacramento Convention Center and focused all day, working through
lunch, on a few key questions at 48 tables with a facilitator at each
table. Each table had an electronic notepad for recording the group's
responses to the discussion, and each of the eight people assigned to a
table had clickers to respond to questions delivered by speakers to the
general audience. Between the responses generated per table via the
notepads and the clicker responses delivered generally, immediate
feedback was able to be provided throughout the day by a dedicated group
of "computer geeks" who received transmission of the electronic data to
create immediate statistics and demographic profiling.
Some obvious trends that appeared included the need to better serve the
young (identified as 13-early 20's), provide access to care for people
who were homeless, and the need to fund community mental health
programs. Please see the link below that gives rich information and
directs the reader to other links related to the Sacramento experience.
Jeanne and David have diverse backgrounds in the disciplines
of mental health, drug and alcohol recovery, nursing, social work, case
management, and chaplaincy. Our "wall-less" services are based on the
belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance.
We serve adult consumers, including parolees and
probationers, private customers, and law enforcement. Because we are wall-less, we have flexibility
in making therapeutic visits, including emergency referrals. Jeanne also teaches psychiatric nursing at the university level for RN student nurses. Additionally, Jeanne has consultation contracts with area psychiatric behavioral and rehab health institutions.
We focus on clients with chronic mental health issues, including P.T.S.D., and we provide other services that include group work, life skill training and assistance with transitional housing as needed.
We also provide consultation and assessment services in the Sacramento area to attorneys, and anyone who works with clients involving disability claims and appeals.
We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come!
