Mental Health Services Offered:
Counseling (Individual & Group): Service includes the interaction with a person served (client) in which the focus is on treatment of the person’s mental illness or emotional disturbance. This is typically done through a counselor-client therapeutic relationship which is developed and continues over a fixed number of sessions (usually weekly) over time. When the person served is a child or adolescent, the interaction may also be with the family members and/or parent, guardian and significant others when the intended outcome is improved functioning of the child or adolescent. Group counseling occurs in a group setting with two or more clients facilitated by one or more counselors.
Diagnostic Assessment: Clinical mental health evaluation provided by an eligible individual either at specified times or in response to treatment, or when significant changes occur. It is a process of gathering information to assess client needs and functioning in order to determine appropriate service/treatment based on identification of the presenting problem, evaluation of mental status, and formulation of a diagnostic impression.
Pharmacological Management (Medication): A psychiatric/mental health/medical intervention used to reduce/stabilize and/or eliminate psychiatric symptoms with the goal of improved functioning, including management and reduction of symptoms.

Medication management is commonly utilized in this service.
Vocational/Employment: Promote recovery and secure/maintain employment by providing training and skill development that is goal-oriented, ability-based, and incorporates individual choice.

Consultation services mean a formal and systematic information exchange between an agency and a person other than a client, which is directed towards the development and improvement of individualized service plans and/or techniques involved in the delivery of mental health services. Finally, Prevention services mean action oriented either toward reducing the incidence, prevalence, or severity of specific types of mental disabilities or emotional disturbances.

In addition, Harbor House members and staff provide a welcoming and accepting environment for individuals who have recently been discharged following hospitalization. In these ways, Harbor House impacts the rate and frequency of hospitalizations among its clientele. Program services are modeled after the psychosocial rehabilitation or "clubhouse" model.

Harbor House provides services for adults ages 18 or older with severe, persistent mental illnesses. Hours are M-F, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
