Behavioral Health Support at Home
If you are a social worker, community partner, or social service partner, you might notice harmful behaviors in your clients. VNS Health’s behavioral health services can help individuals in all aspects of their lives — whether that’s building relationships, achieving their dreams, or completing daily tasks.
In addition to our community programs, VNS Health supports individuals with various home care plans. When needed, a behavioral health specialist is available to support home care nurses as a part of an individual’s overall care plan. This can be beneficial in helping someone address all aspects of their health — including physical, mental, and emotional health.
