Southwest Solutions provides many program to help individuals of all ages improve their behavioral and physical health and their quality of life.
Adult Counseling Services
Mental illness can affect anyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age or income level. Our quality health services for adults with mental illness make it possible for those we serve to recover and become productive members of the community. They work, attend school, socialize and become self-sufficient. We provide a system of support driven by our guiding principles: respect, responsibility and recovery. We believe that the mentally ill can recover, and their success stories, which are often dramatic, are the reason for our being.
Children, Youth and Families Counseling
Our family-centered programs serve children and youth who have a severe emotional disturbance, have been adjudicated by the juvenile court, or are at risk of being placed out of the community due to behavioral problems. Our mission is to help children and youth change their lives so that they will make decisions in the best interests of their future and wellbeing. We use a Wraparound Approach to create a plan of care that is tailored and well-suited for each child or youth we serve. We partner with the young person’s family and engage the agencies and support services needed to help the child or youth succeed.
Cornerstone is an effective, nationally-recognized initiative that helps young people integrate into their communities and lead productive lives as they transition to adulthood. Participants learn the life skills they need to be successful and independent.
