Consumers participate in the development of an Individual Plan of Care (IPC) which assists in the understanding of the services that are being sought and identifies expectations for the coming year. This plan can be changed as needed but will be reviewed at least once each year. Consumers are expected to take an active role in the development of the IPC including sharing strengths, needs, wants and service expectations. A case manager or clinician is available to assist in the service planning process to ensure that it is clearly focused on the client's goals. Consumers may choose to have others, such as family, involved in the treatment planning.
Rutland Mental Health Services is highly committed to supporting consumers with the quality services they need. Our dedicated staff of caring professionals has been trained to meet federal, state and other accreditation requirements for professional development. In addition, all staff members are expected to abide by the Code of Conduct established by Rutland Mental Health Services. A copy of this Code is available upon request.
At Rutland Mental Health Services, we strive to provide highly individualized, quality services to each person we assist. As part of our ongoing efforts to broaden and enhance our services, we ask our consumers for input. Our consumers and/or their guardians are always encouraged to provide feedback to our staff at any time about their experiences with Rutland Mental Health Services. In addition, at least once a year, we ask our consumers and/or their guardians to complete a questionnaire to assess their satisfaction with our services.
