Mental Health Services
The Orion In-Home Family Therapy Program is designed for the treatment of children, adolescents and their families who need support within their home, school, or community.
Individual and family therapy are offered services. Including families in treatment when working with children and adolescents is an approach that improves individual and family functioning with the goal of addressing mental health needs while enhancing the well-being of all family members.
In both Madison, Monroe and Janesville, we provide confidential counseling and therapy services to children, youth, and adults. A wide range of issues are addressed including trauma, depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, family conflicts, and marital discord.
Parenting Support & Programs
The demands presented by children with mental health challenges or problems with alcohol and/or drug use, delinquent behavior, or school-related behaviors often become overwhelming for parents to address on their own. Parenting support and skill development are incorporated into counseling and therapy services when this need is identified.
This includes our Parent Skill Builder Program. Developed in 2007, the Parent Skill Building (PSB) program is designed to help parents as they work to increase and improve their parenting skills.
Comprehensive Community Services (CCS)
CCS is a client driven, comprehensive, voluntary program designed to support people as they address mental health and/or substance use conditions. The CCS program offers a wide array of psychosocial rehabilitation services, including Service Facilitation, Individual Skill Development, Individual and Family Psychoeducation and Psychotherapy.
These services and supportive activities assist CCS consumers to achieve their highest possible level of independent functioning, stability, independence and help facilitate recovery. Orion provides CCS services throughout southern Wisconsin.
Community Services staff are credentialed to provide Individual Skill Development services.
Childrens Long Term Support (CLTS)
Community Services staff team with Orion Mental Health Services staff to provide wraparound care under Community Integration Services (CIS) programming. A master level therapist serves as Care Coordinator and manages the care provided across the service array. Community Services staff provide the following services: daily living skills, supportive home care, mentoring, training for unpaid caregivers, and respite care.
Supervised Visitations are offered to non-custodial parents to ensure a positive and safe visit with their children. This supervision can take place in the home or community setting. The Orion staff document the family interaction and are available to ensure the safety of all family members.
In-Home Safety Services (IHSS)
A County agency establishes a contract with Orion to provide in-home services to families at risk of child abuse or neglect. The service is designed in response to assessed needs and is often a part of a safety plan. Examples of services provided include random drug tests, supervision during high-risk times of the day, transportation to treatment, home management and basic parenting support.
In Home Stabilization (IHS)
Provided under a county contract and in partnership with crisis and emergency mental health staff, the purpose of this program is to ensure the well-being of consumers referred to for services. Examples of services provided include AOD recovery and support, medication monitoring, mental health stabilization and hospital diversion.
