What we aim to solve

Appleseed Community Mental Health Center's comprehensive services for residents of Ashland County include mental health services, community programs, youth services, and crisis intervention. Our caring staff are fully trained and certified including licensed counselors, social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists. Being a client of Appleseed Community Mental Health Center means having our services tailored to your needs. We want to provide the least restrictive environment possible so that you feel safe and comfortable during your time in our care. We also recognize that the ability to pay often prevents individuals from seeking help. At Appleseed, we work with you to create an individualized plan that you can afford because our goal is your well-being. We know these are sensitive issues. Even if you feel there is no hope for your situation, you don't have to try to handle it alone. We are here to help. There is hope.

Appleseed's overall goals are exemplified through its operational values, including: Respect: Recognize the value of each person for their unique qualities and inherent right to be treated with and spoken to with respect in all client and staff interactions. Learning & Growth: Provide staff with the opportunities to grow from experiences at ACMHC. In return, staff will demonstrate learning and growth in their respective roles. Fiscal Responsibility: • Operate within budget • Adhere to best practices regarding billing and collecting • Maintain a cash reserve • Secure an annual independent audit Excellence: ACMHC and its employees will strive to fulfill the agency’s mission by creating a culture that embraces continuous improvement, program evaluation, data analysis, and a quest for excellence.

The organization's strategies are achieved through its theoretical framework, including: Trauma-Informed Care-is an evidence-based approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. –National Center for Trauma Informed Care (NCTIC, www.samsha.gov/nctic, 2013) Systems Theory- explains human behavior as the intersection of the influences of multiple interrelated systems. Even for individual issues, families, organizations, societies, and other systems are inherently involved and must be considered when attempting to understand and assist the individual. According to this theory, all systems are interrelated and parts constituting an ordered whole and each subsystem influences other parts of the whole. (https://socialworklicensemap.com/theoretical-approaches-social -work-systems-theory/)

Appleseed is capable of meeting its goals through its treatment values, including: Empowerment of Individuals and Families: ACMHC- provided treatment will strengthen the abilities of clients to live safe, healthy, and abuse-free lives. Holistic: Provided services will treat the client cognitively, behaviorally, emotionally, and physically to engage the person’s entire support system. Person-Centered Approach: ACMHC-provided services will be evaluated regularly in order to demonstrate their effectiveness in helping clients achieve their goals and objectives. Utilization of Evidenced-Based Practices and offering Outcome-Informed Services

Appleseed measures its success through a variety of qualitative and quantitative data collection methods, including but not limited to, collection of number of persons served, client demographic data, number of crisis calls received, type of services provided, number of and type of referrals made, outcome surveys, and intakes and case management notes.
