School & Work Stress

There are several different kinds of stress related disorders. Our clinicians can work with you to identify the causes of your stress and develop a plan that is right for you. Types of stress disorders can include

Acute Stress Disorder: Occurs in individuals without any other apparent psychiatric disorder, in response to exceptional physical/or psychological stress.

While severe, such reactions usually subside within hours or days.

Acute Stress Disorder can be brought on by an overwhelming traumatic experience like an accident or physical assault. It can also occur when there is an unusual or sudden change in social circumstances, such as multiple bereavement. Individual vulnerability and coping capacity plays a role in the occurrence and severity. This differs from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in that the symptoms are usually immediate but do not necessarily last a long time.

Acute Stress Disorder usually has the following symptoms:

  • An initial state of DAZE with some constriction of the field of consciousness and narrowing of attention
  • An inability to comprehend stimuli
  • Disorientation followed either by further withdrawal from the surrounding situation to the extent of a dissociative stupor or by agitating and over activity.
  • Sweating
  • Hyperventilation

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: PTSD arises as a delayed and/or protracted response to a stressful event or situation of an exceptionally threatening nature and likely to cause pervasive distress in almost anyone.

Causes of PTSD vary. A few examples of causes are things like Natural Disasters, War, A Serious Accident or being the victim of sexual abuse or rape. Some predisposing factors for PTSD are related to Personality Traits or perhaps a previous history of psychiatric issues. Typical symptoms may include “Flashbacks”, intense distress at exposure to events that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event, including anniversaries of the trauma, an avoidance of activities and situations reminiscent of the trauma, emotional blunting or “numbness”, a sense of detachment from other people, suicidal thoughts and more.

Adult Case Management for the Mentally Ill

Case Management is the first step in determining the services that are right for a consumer. Each consumer will be assessed and a individualized, person-centered plan will be developed. The Plan of Care will take into account consumer goals and the steps needed to reach those goals. Each plan will promote choice, community experiences, employment and personal satisfaction.

Case Management for the Severely Mentally Ill is a voluntary case management program for adults with severe mental illness. Case management is the process by which adults with severe mental illness receive support in negotiating for various services that they want and need to improve their quality of life.

Adults with a serious mental illness are those over 18 years old who currently or at any time during the last year, have had a diagnosable mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder of sufficient duration to merit diagnostic criteria specified within the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that has resulted in functional impairment which substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities.

In order to qualify for services, the individual must have been hospitalized for mental illness more than once in the last two years or have clinically significant symptoms of mental illness which have persisted for a continuous period of at least two years or have a history of one or more episodes with marked disability and the mental illness is expected to continue for a two years period of time.  Finally, they must demonstrate functional impairment in two or more of the following areas:  interpersonal functioning, societal/role functioning, physical functioning, daily living/personal care functioning and cognitive/intellectual functioning.

The client must have a clinical practitioner in the Purchase Area of Kentucky (plus Livingston County) whom they see regularly. They must demonstrate a willingness to work with a Service Coordinator and to develop and work toward personal goals.

The SMI Program may provide the following services:  Interagency Collaboration, Individualized Service Planning, Resource Consultation, Illness Management and Recovery Services, or funds to assist with meeting their.

Only Western State Hospital or a clinical practitioner may refer an adult for SMI Case Management Services.  The goal of the program is to assist those with severe mental illness to remain in the community rather than experience long-term hospitalizations.

Supported Employment Services

Supported Employment helps secure work and maintain that employment. Program participants work with an Employment Specialist to identify appropriate job opportunities based on their interests and abilities.

Supported Employment Specialists continue to work with consumers after they are hired to assist both the consumers and the employer as much as needed to ensure success. Some types of assistance provided to consumers includes additional training, promoting effective communications between employer and employee and helping with any concerns an employer may have.

Our help begins when a program participant meets with a Supported Employment Specialist. The role of an employment specialist and the amount of involvement and assistance an employment specialist provides, is based on the comfort level of clients. We can provide a lot or a little help. Our services can include helping consumers learn how to do their job at the work site or supporting employees off the job.

A Supported Employment Specialist will meet with consumers to discuss the pros and cons and disclosing the consumer’s disability. Ultimately, participants decide and we work to ensure their requests are honored.

Consumers choosing to work with a Supported Employment Specialist to secure a job have taken yet another step toward a more independent life. Working, and all the responsibilities that come with a job, strengthen consumers abilities and provides a sense of belonging and contribution that is sometimes lacking for people diagnosed with a disability. We help place participants in all kinds of jobs and each job plan and ultimately each job, is based on a client’s interests and abilities.

  • Access to an untapped and under-utilized labor pool.
  • Pre-screening of applicants
  • Individualized training at no expense
  • Reduced turn over rates
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Ongoing support and follow up
  • Dedicated Employees
  • Tax Credits

People with common life experiences have a unique capacity to help each other. The programs typically operate Monday – Friday each week for 4-6 hours a day. Some transportation is available to assist consumers with getting to the program. Programs services focus on peer counseling (individual or group), referral to resources, advocacy, arts and expression, outreach and meal/meal preparation skills. Consumer-operated programs are simply health services delivered by consumers in a warm home-like envirnment.
