Discharge Planning and Continuum of Care
Mental health disorders, like other chronic health conditions, require a lifetime of regular management. While Futures’ patients can reduce their symptoms and learn vital skills during their time at the residential program, establishing a strong and accessible continuum of coordinated healthcare is often needed to keep symptoms under control and make additional progress. Futures’ discharge planning specialists help patients identify and connect with the specialized mental health providers in their home communities that will continue treatment. Through careful planning, patients can make a smooth and seamless transition between Futures and the ongoing care providers that will help them sustain good mental health and improved quality of life.
