The Mission of the Warren-Washington Association for Mental Health, Inc. (WWAMH) is to improve the quality of life for those affected by mental illness and to promote the awareness and importance of mental wellbeing in the community.
Helping put the pieces in place by focusing on programs and services that meet our community’s mental health needs.
WWAMH is committed to listening to the voice of the service recipient, and to collaborating in creative ways with other service providers in the community.
We will work to expand the resources available to individuals and opportunities for personal development and growth.
Agency Programs & Services
Care Management acts as a “unifier” in the mental health care system by linking young people and adults to services specific to their needs. Support is tailor-made, matching community programs to each individual. By integrating and personalizing services, care is intended to provide a solid building block for an individual’s development towards self-reliance and self-improvement.
WWAMH’s Residential Programs are houses and apartments where individuals with psychiatric disabilities live while developing skills needed for independence. Programs are designed to offer different levels of support to a person in their efforts to achieve his/her highest level of well-being, while reducing costly hospitalizations by providing caring and skilled intervention in times of crisis. Services promote a person’s capabilities through companionship, education, counseling, vocational training, and respite, and the duration of each person’s stay is based on their individual needs
Support Services focus on supporting and enhancing recovery and wellness by offering a variety of opportunities in a flexible, person-centered manner. There is no charge for services, which are completely voluntary and based on individual goals and preferences.
Benefits Management assists with money management and benefits. Representative payee services are available to those receiving Social Security. Individuals are also assisted in applying for Social Security benefits, filing appeals and hearings, completing re-determinations and reporting change.
Caleo Counseling Services, the outpatient clinic of WWAMH, strives to provide therapy and medication evaluation and management if necessary, in a warm and professional atmosphere. Services are available for children, adolescents, adults and families living in Warren and Washington Counties.
