Mental Health Diagnosing:
Our mental health professionals offer diagnostic services for all ages. We also offer specialized diagnostic services for children ages 0-5 years.
Veteran's Family Services:
Understanding the need to support military families in our midst, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon SEMN and Family Service Rochester have partnered to provide mental health services to military families. Family Service Rochester offers case management, counseling and therapy services to Veteran Families in Southeast Minnesota. A few of the areas we address:
A therapeutic, educational group that provides men the opportunity to increase their knowledge about domestic violence; to develop and use the non-violent, problem-solving and relationship skills; and to understand the damages resulting from domestic violence. This program meets the MN State Statutes standards for domestic abuse counseling and education programs.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy:
Our trained therapists provide an intensive, comprehensive program for adults that struggle with emotional regulation and are at risk of self-injury or suicide. This program was developed by Dr. Marsha Lineman to treat individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, and/or multiple mental health diagnoses. Research has demonstrated that DBT is the most effective treatment for reducing suicide and self-injury while helping people build a life worth living. Program components include individual therapy, skills training and phone coaching.
Training for DBT was provided by a generous donation in memory of John Beyerle, a long time therapist and friend of Family Service Rochester.
Mental Health First Aid:
Just as CPR helps assist individuals having a heart attack. In this course, participants learn how to apply the 5 step Mental Health First Aid action plan. Addressed are risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
Children's Therapeutic Support Services (CTSS):
A flexible package of mental health services for children and their families who require varying levels of therapeutic and rehabilitative intervention. Our belief is that all family members should have services and support available to help assist the child in achieving the desired level of functioning.
Our certified therapists utilize this short-term treatment with children between the ages of 3-18. Understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. An adult family member is involved in the service as childhood trauma not only affects individuals, but their families.
Family Based Services:
Unaddressed mental health and behavioral concerns can negatively impact a child's development, academic progress and disrupt family life. Our mental health professionals and practitioners provide counseling to families in their own homes. Through a variety of programs and interventions, families will identify their strengths, explore concerns to create and work an action plan.
School Based Services:
School based mental health services are available for children identified by their school as needing additional support beyond what the school offers as part of their education system. Our therapists provide counseling services onsite in the school setting, ultimately removing barriers for children and families. With early identification, evaluation, and treatment, children and adolescents living with mental illness can achieve success in family life, in school, and in work.
