ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT (AOT)
SERVICES/MEDICATION GRANT PROGRAM
BHSN acts as the AOT Coordinator for Clinton County for court-ordered individuals needing community supervision. AOT/Intensive Case Management services are offered as a diversion from court-mandated services. The Medication Grant Program provides medication, at no charge, for individuals with a mental illness being discharged from the jail or hospital while their Medicaid application is pending.
Care Management facilitates access to and coordination of the full array of primary and acute physical and behavioral health services. Services are designed to help people manage chronic health conditions, improve health outcomes and reduce the use of avoidable inpatient and emergency room care. In order to qualify for services, an individual must be on the Health Home roster or referred for services and reviewed and accepted by the Single Point of Access Committee.
PROS (Personalized Recovery Oriented Services)
The PROS Learning Center is a complete recovery program that brings rehabilitation, support and clinic services together into one plan that supports participants’ ambitions and hopes. PROS services are broken down into four categories of services with the Individualized Recovery Plan keeping everyone working in the same direction – helping an individual obtain a desired life role.
BHSN Crisis Services provide 24-hour outreach support and intervention to seriously mentally ill adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

This program is highly effective at reducing psychiatric hospitalizations by connecting individuals with needed community outpatient services and resources.
