Therapeutic Approach

The primary therapeutic approach for Mindful Mental Health of Alabama, LLC., providers is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel. It is used to help treat a wide range of issues in a person’s life. CBT works by changing people’s attitudes and their behavior by focusing on the thoughts, images, beliefs and attitudes that are held (a person’s cognitive processes) and how these processes relate to the way a person behaves, as a way of dealing with emotional problems. An important advantage of cognitive behavioral therapy is that it tends to be short, taking five to ten months for most emotional problems. Clients attend one session per week, each session lasting approximately 30-50 minutes. During this time, the client and therapist are work together to understand what the problems are and develop new strategies for tackling them.

Health Services For Patients

Throughout our lives we are faced with change and the resulting effects on life around us. Change is a regular part of our daily life. There are times however, where change is the result of a major life transition and our ability to adapt to the new environment is beyond our skill level. Therapy offers individuals or families a process to work through what this life change means. Often when faced with a change we look for ways to incorporate this into the life we are leading. In the case of a major life transition, therapy helps to determine how the life we are leading will adapt to this foundational shift. Your therapist is here to help identify these issues and the other adjustment issues as you move forward through the many life transitions that help to create the person we are today.

What is TeleMental Health?

The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration promotes the use of telehealth for various reasons and through a variety of methods.

Smooth Residential Transition & Adjustment

An adjustment (transition) disorder occurs when an individual is unable to adjust to or cope with a particular stressor, like a major life event. Since people with this disorder normally have symptoms that depressed people do, such as general loss of interest, feelings of hopelessness and crying, this disorder is also sometimes known as situational depression. Unlike major depression however, the disorder is caused by an outside stressor and generally resolves once the individual is able to adapt to the situation.

Baseline and Ongoing Assessments

MMHA health care providers are State of Alabama Licensed Clinical Psychologists or Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW’s) trained in mental health therapy that perform baseline initial assessments. These standardized assessments identify individuals that may have mental health conditions at the time of assessment or are deemed to be “at risk” to develop one.

Awareness Activities

MMHA creates awareness of its services through a variety of methods including (but not limited to):

  • Community presentations directed to residents and families
  • Educational initiatives directed to facility staff
  • Informational fliers for presentation and other educational activities
  • MMHA provides residential communities with educational activities for community newsletters

Individual & Group Therapy

At the time of initial assessment, individuals will enter therapy (if appropriate). After obtaining consent to treat (either from the resident directly, from their guardian or POA), therapy will either be performed on an individual basis or in a group setting or both. Treatment will be ongoing as deemed appropriate by the therapist.
