Everyone is prone to feeling overwhelmed at times, and with all the recent stress due to COVID-19, anxiety and feelings of hopelessness are perhaps even greater. For nearly 20 years KVC Kentucky has provided a vast array of behavioral health services to children, adults and families with a primary focus on in-home and community-based services. As COVID-19 forces many to remain in the home, our compassionate staff is unable in many cases to provide treatment in the typical settings. As a result, we have recently accelerated our use of Telehealth, which will allow our trained professionals to provide therapeutic services, resources and support anywhere in Kentucky.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your behavioral health care needs. KVC’s provision of Telehealth is to best meet our client’s needs and reduce barriers associated with in-home and office-based care. It means that we can conveniently and effectively provide therapy for you in your home.
- No travel time or sitting in waiting rooms.
- Your provider can better understand the opportunities and barriers that you face in your everyday environment.
Below are the types of Telehealth services offered.
We utilize a service team approach to develop a collaborative care plan that is designed to help clients live successfully at home and in the community. Team members meet frequently to assess progress, develop goals and interventions and put crucial support systems in place.
- Assessment: Our master’s level clinicians are highly trained in comprehensive assessment techniques in order to develop an accurate analysis of a child’s presenting problems.
- Therapy: Our therapists work with the service team to identify specific evidence based interventions and can provide therapy at a frequency, schedule and location based on the needs of the child.
- Case Management: KVC case managers work diligently and quickly to find the proper care and provide services, referrals and resource linkages that focus on the needs of the child and family. Case management includes advocacy, resource development, team development, conducting collaborative service team meetings, accessing any needed medical, social, educational or other support services, and coordinating services through inter-agency involvement and collaboration.
- Comprehensive Community Support Services: Our community support associates work with the wraparound team to provide targeted, strengths-based skill-building to support and enhance youth and adults ability to live independently in the community, improve coping strategies to reduce mental health symptoms, and maximize overall functioning and wellbeing.
- Psychiatry: Our psychiatrist is available to meet with clients to provide consultation, evaluation and medication management as needed
Despite these uncertain times, we are committed to continuing to strengthen and support the well-being and vitality of Kentucky’s children, adults, families and communities through our impactful services.
KVC Kentucky is accredited by The Joint Commission, which is considered the gold standard in healthcare. Our nearly 235 passionate, dedicated staff work from eight locations across Central, Eastern, Northeastern and Northern Kentucky to help strengthen the lives of individuals and families each day.
