The Face of Mental Health

By Inside Columbia
Burrell Behavioral Health

Have you ever known someone who was struggling with a mental illness? There are many levels and types of clinic-based care available. For individuals with serious and persistent mental illnesses, getting support may look a bit different. In fact, they may be eligible for a unique program that Burrell Behavioral Health provides in central Missouri: Community Support Services.

Much like its name suggests, these services occur primarily outside of a traditional clinic setting, taking place in the client’s home or in the community. Burrell’s Community Support specialists work with individuals to practice skills needed to meet goals for independent living and community integration.

Just a few of the many faces that make Community Support Services possible are: Jessica Obuchowski, senior director, Community Services; Tyler Davis, program coordinator, Edenton Ridge; Alexa Summers, director, Youth Services; and Cara Crumley, director, Adult Community Services. They and their teams know that supporting our neighbors can lead to a healthier, stronger and more productive community.
