Mainstreaming Behavioral and Mental Health Services
Addressing the Accessibility Crisis Head-on
Many people still do not have access to evidence-based care for common behavioral health issues. While there has been progress in reducing stigma associated with seeking care for anxiety, depression, or stress, there is still a long way to go.
Meeting People Where They Are
Beacon Care Services has licensed clinical social workers in convenient and accessible locations, such as retail stores. Individuals with common behavioral health issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, and troubled relationships can get the help they need when they need it. The first Beacon Care Services practice is located within a Walmart in Carrollton, Texas.
Beacon Care Services will fill gaps and make services available in locations that are familiar and already part of people’s daily lives.
Our clinicians provide compassionate care, in-person or through virtual telehealth sessions, that address an individual’s unique needs by:
- Being person-centered. We start and end with what our clients want for better health. We allow individuals to access care in a way that fits into their busy lives; appointments can be booked online or by walking in to the store-based location.
- Following evidence-based practices. We hold ourselves accountable to deliver the best available treatment backed by scientific evidence. Clinicians follow the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) regarding evidence-based practices.
- Focusing on integrated health. We recognize the importance of “whole person/whole health” and work with a multi-disciplinary team; we assess health and life factors to address identified issues.
- Providing personalized treatment. We offer a written individualized treatment plan that is person-centered, recovery-oriented, culturally competent, and addresses personalized goals and objectives.
Our Aim—Better, Timelier Care
By improving access to care, we work with people before they engage in maladaptive behaviors such as substance use. The comprehensive, and personalized treatment plans offered by licensed clinicians allow us to achieve a high percentage of successful treatment and successfully discharge clients. Additionally, our goal is to ensure client satisfaction and attain high satisfaction scores compared to our peers in the industry.
