The Behavior Health Department

The Behavior Health Department provides a variety of services available to persons served by Strive on the DD waiver. These services are provided to those who may need help and behavior supports and interventions. These services are targeted to help people live healthier lives in regard to their mind, body, and overall health. The Behavior team works with the IDT team to provide needed supports.  There are a variety of services that a person might need depending on his or her individual challenges. One person may need help with frustration, while another may be managing bipolar disorder – and another might need help with an increased level of anxiety, etc.

The services are targeted to assist with a variety of issues – everything from depression to anxiety to verbal/physical aggression and much more. The issue a person is facing will determine which type of behavior services will be provided and what service is most relevant. This can range from a behavior support plan, behavior line staff support, individual/group counseling, etc. In addition, we are able to provide behavior health services in the home setting, voc. setting, day program, and the community.

The Behavior Health Department works in and with these other important STRiVE Services.
