Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The primary focus of MHR is to address disparities in healthcare accessibility and equity, particularly in underserved rural areas. We aim to provide comprehensive mental health services and support to individuals residing in our rural communities who may face barriers such as limited access to healthcare facilities, transportation challenges, stigma surrounding mental health, and shortages of mental health professionals. Our organization works to bridge these gaps by offering outreach programs, telehealth services, community partnerships, and advocacy initiatives aimed at improving mental health outcomes and ensuring that everyone, regardless of location or background, has access to quality mental health care.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Outpatient Counseling

MHR provides outpatient counseling services to individuals, couples, or families. This outpatient counseling includes One-on-One Counseling, Family Counseling, and Group-Based Counseling. Counseling or therapy approaches are individualized and utilized to treat numerous mental health and substance use disorders. Clients and their therapists determine essential areas to focus on in treatment, and goals are reviewed with all clients every quarter. MHR does not provide psychological testing for diagnoses such as dementia/Alzheimer's or autism spectrum disorder.

Population(s) Served

Mental Health Resources, Inc. offers psychiatric services in conjunction with the therapeutic process to individuals who may benefit from medication therapy. MHR does not currently offer “stand-alone” psychiatric services as our philosophy believes in the relationship between mental health, medications, and the therapeutic process to facilitate the best possible outcome. Referrals for medication evaluations are made following the clinical intake process for individuals who meet service eligibility requirements.

Population(s) Served

Multi-systemic therapy provides intensive home and community-based treatment for adolescents and teens who are at risk of out-of-home placement or are returning home from placement and their families. The MST model targets specific behaviors with behavioral interventions specific to each client and family. Services include an initial assessment to identify the focus of the MST interventions, work with the child, the family, the schools and others who influence the youths life.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

MHR offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for individuals with substance use disorders and serves as a step-up from traditional outpatient counseling services or a step-down program from inpatient treatments such as detox or rehabilitation.
The program is intensive in that an individual participates in treatment sessions for a minimum of 9 hours each week to aid in achieving and supporting long-term recovery. The average length of stay in the program is 4-6 months. During treatment, individuals are taught early recovery and relapse prevention skills, and social support and family education are also provided. IOP treatment uses an evidence-based model known as The Matrix Model, along with weekly random urinalysis screenings for accountability to recovery goals.

Population(s) Served

Community Support Services (CCSS) aims to serve individuals/families with the services and resources necessary to promote recovery, rehabilitation, and resiliency. Community support activities address goals, specifically functional domains: independent living, learning, working, socializing, and recreation.
CCSS consists of various interventions, primarily face-to-face and in community locations, that address barriers that impede the development of skills necessary for independent functioning in the community and strengths that may aid the eligible recipient and family in the recovery or resiliency process.
Comprehensive Community Support Services also includes assistance with identifying and coordinating services and supports identified in an individuals treatment plan, supporting an individual and family in crises, and providing individual interventions to develop or enhance an individuals ability to make informed and independent choices.

Population(s) Served

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a "whole-patient" approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. There are FDA-approved medications to treat alcohol use disorder, smoking, and opioid use disorder.

Population(s) Served

The purpose of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (PSR) is to provide an array of services offered through a group modality in a clubhouse or classroom setting to help an individual capitalize on personal strengths, develop coping strategies and skills to deal with deficits and to develop a supportive environment in which to function as independently as possible. Psychosocial rehabilitation intervention is intended to be a transitional level of care based on the individuals recovery and resiliency goals.

Population(s) Served

The CareLink NM service delivery model enhances the integration and coordination of primary, acute, behavioral health, and long-term care services and supports across the lifespan for persons with chronic illness. CLNM increases access to health education and promotion activities and monitors the CLNM members treatment outcomes and utilization of resources. CLNM care coordinators help to coordinate appointments with primary care and specialty practitioners and can help to coordinate discharge planning when the member is moving between different levels of care.

Population(s) Served

Certified Peer Support Workers use their experience to inspire hope and instill a sense of empowerment in others. They are trained to deliver various support services and help others identify and navigate systems to aid recovery. Through wisdom from their lived experience, they inspire hope and belief that recovery is possible.
Family Peer Support Services supports parents and other primary caregivers to ensure their voice is heard, incorporate their preferences into their childrens care plans, and strengthen their natural support systems. FPSS helps families gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to effectively manage their needs and ultimately move to more family independence. Family Peers Support Workers (FPSWs) serve as role models demonstrating effective relationships, interactions, and behaviors, sharing their experience, as appropriate, to establish a bond based on similar experiences.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

MHR is committed to achieving several key objectives:

We aim to increase access to mental health care in rural areas by expanding our reach through telehealth services, and community outreach programs such as Comprehensive Community Support Services.

We strive to decrease the stigma surrounding mental health issues in rural communities through education, and community engagement efforts, such as a Mental Health Awareness 5k each May.

Our goal is to empower individuals in rural areas with knowledge and resources to better understand mental health conditions, recognize symptoms, and seek appropriate support and treatment.

We aim to foster supportive environments in rural communities where individuals feel comfortable discussing mental health concerns openly and can access a network of resources and support that MHR offers.

Overall, our organization is dedicated to ensuring that individuals in rural communities have equal opportunities to access high-quality mental health care and support, leading to improved well-being and resilience across these underserved areas.

Below are just a few of MHR's strategies to bring good health and well-being to our community through our resources.

1. Providing one-on-one counseling sessions with licensed mental health professionals to address specific mental health concerns and provide personalized support and coping strategies.

2. Facilitating group therapy sessions or support groups where individuals with similar experiences can share their challenges, receive support, and learn from each other's coping mechanisms.

3. Offering classes to increase awareness and understanding of mental health issues, coping skills, stress management techniques, and strategies for maintaining overall well-being.

4. Utilizing telehealth platforms to deliver mental health services remotely, enabling individuals in rural areas to access counseling and therapy sessions from the comfort of their homes.

5. Establishing crisis intervention services and hotlines to provide immediate support and assistance to individuals experiencing mental health crises or emotional distress.

6. Incorporating holistic approaches to mental well-being, such as encouraging mindfulness practices, relaxation techniques, physical activity, and holistic therapies like art therapy.

7. Establishing peer support programs where individuals with lived experience of mental health challenges serve as mentors or peer supporters to provide encouragement, guidance, and empathy to others facing similar struggles.

8. Providing ongoing support and follow-up care to clients to monitor progress, address any emerging concerns, and ensure that individuals receive the support they need to maintain their mental well-being over time.

Below are just a few of the ways that MHR is capable of promoting mental well-being among our clients:

1. Employing licensed mental health professionals, including counselors, therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists, who are trained and experienced in providing a range of mental health services.

2. Established telehealth infrastructure to deliver remote mental health services, including video conferencing platforms, secure communication channels, and electronic health record systems.

3. Collaborating with local community organizations, healthcare providers, schools, churches, and other stakeholders to expand outreach efforts, coordinate care, and leverage existing resources and networks.

4. Providing crisis intervention services, including 24/7 hotlines, crisis response teams, and partnerships with emergency services, to ensure immediate support for individuals in crisis situations.

5. Offering training and education programs for staff on topics such as mental health awareness, suicide prevention, trauma-informed care, and cultural competence.

6. Conduct outreach activities, awareness campaigns, and community events to reduce stigma, raise awareness about mental health issues, and promote available resources and services.

7. Conduct research and program evaluation to assess the effectiveness of interventions, identify areas for improvement, and contribute to the evidence base for rural mental health services.

8. Securing funding through grants, donations, and partnerships to support program operations, staffing, training, technology upgrades, and outreach initiatives, while effectively managing resources to maximize impact and sustainability.

9. Adopt a client-centered approach that prioritizes individual needs, preferences, and cultural backgrounds, and tailoring services to meet the diverse needs of clients in rural communities.

MHR boasts a highly qualified staff delivering comprehensive care to clients, supported by a multi-dimensional telehealth platform continually optimized for user experience. With strong community ties, MHR leverages partnerships for client referrals, while offering crisis intervention services and ongoing staff training to meet regulatory standards. MHR's proactive approach extends to community outreach initiatives like the Mental Health Awareness 5K, reinforcing our commitment to destigmatizing mental health. A dedicated Quality Improvement Director ensures program efficacy, complemented by a grant writer securing external funding with the assistance of a Grant Committee that is made up of members of senior leadership. MHR follows a Treat First initiative, which ensures all clients receive equitable care, regardless of background, reinforcing our mission to address mental health needs in rural areas effectively.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
