Adult Mental Health

About Adult Mental Health

Mental health symptoms can significantly impact many aspects of a person’s life, including his or her relationships, family functioning, work, leisure time, and overall quality of life. Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare offers mental health services and provides resources and referrals to help our clients make positive changes in their lives.


Core Services

Tri-County offers an array of mental health services for eligible individuals. Additional specialty services are also available to individuals who qualify. Eligibility for certain services varies by program, is based upon assessments and current availability. Every individual served will be provided with a recovery team who will work collaboratively with the person to identify what services and supports would be beneficial for the person to achieve their own unique recovery goals.

Medication Management

Medication services are provided to all eligible individuals who could benefit from psychiatric medication to address and alleviate symptoms related to mental illness. An initial psychiatric evaluation will be conducted with the Prescriber to establish a medication regimen. After the initial appointment, routine 15-minute appointments will follow for medication management.  Prescriptions may be filled through your pharmacy of choice, or at one of the two locations at Tri-County. We offer a Prescription Assistance Program through the East Texas Behavioral Healthcare Network for those who qualify.

Case Management

Case management services are provided to all individuals served. Case managers will work collaboratively with you to identify your needs and strengths, monitor how you are responding to treatment, collaborate with you to identify goals and develop a Person-Centered Recovery Plan. Our case managers will also coordinate care with other community agencies and referrals to offer a holistic and individualized approach to your recovery.

Adult Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Skills Training Services

Adult Rehabilitation Services are offered to individuals served based upon eligibility and availability of the service. These services may be offered at Tri-County facilities, as well as in the home or community settings for the convenience of our individuals served. The frequency and intensity of rehabilitation services will depend on the agreed upon level of care, as described in the recovery plan. Your Mental Health Specialist will work with you to learn skills to address symptom-related problems that interfere with daily functioning, and help you successfully integrate into the community. Examples of skills include communication skills, skills for managing daily responsibilities and independence, coping with stress and symptoms, social skills, and care coordination.

Supported Housing

Supported Housing services are provided to individuals who need assistance in accessing and maintaining a place to live. These services may involve assistance with locating a safe and affordable living arrangement as well as working collaboratively with the individual to access resources and develop skills necessary to maintain housing.

Supported Employment

Supported Employment services are provided to individuals who need assistance in obtaining and maintaining employment. These services may involve providing training which helps individuals find and keep employment and offering guidance and techniques to assist individuals so they can better respond to various employment challenges that may arise.

Peer Support

Tri-County offers Peer Support services by Certified Peer Specialists. Our peers take a unique approach to recovery, using their own lived experiences to help support and assist individuals to reaching their own recovery goals.

Access and Intake

Tri-County has transitioned to using a ‘walk-in’ intake process, which allows you to meet with a mental health clinician the same day you request services in order to determine eligibility for services.  If eligible for services, an appointment with a prescriber will be scheduled on another day, generally within two weeks.

If scheduled for an intake, it is recommended to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time. Potential clients will not see a prescriber, nor will they receive medication, on the same day they come through our intake walk-in.

To ensure social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking individuals seeking care to call 1-800-550-8408 to request services instead of coming in person.

Admission Process

Step 1

Come to one of our outpatient clinics during walk-in hours. During walk-in, you will:

  • Meet with a Financial Specialist to complete a Financial Assessment; and
  • Meet with a mental health professional to complete a brief mental health screening.

During the screening, you will be asked some basic questions about your current symptoms and history in order to determine if you may be eligible for services. From there, you may be scheduled for an Intake Evaluation. A same-day evaluation may be offered, based on the individual’s willingness to wait. We can also offer appointments for a later date, as needed.

Please note: We are unable to provide medications through the walk-in clinic or during the Intake Evaluation. You will not be prescribed medication until your first visit with a prescriber.

Step 2

If you are scheduled for an evaluation, attend your scheduled Intake Evaluation. This evaluation may last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. During the evaluation you will meet with a mental health professional to discuss your symptoms and history in further detail.

Following the evaluation, you may:

  • Be scheduled for an appointment to meet with a prescriber and case manager;
  • Be placed on our mental health waiting list until further services are available; or
  • Be referred to a more appropriate provider for further services.

Step 3

If you are scheduled with a prescriber, attend your initial psychiatric appointment. This appointment may last 1.5 to 2 hours. During this appointment, you will meet with a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner, a nurse, and a case manager.
