Our Approach

CLUB WELLLIFE DROP-IN CENTER

Club WellLife is a local community center that offers people who have mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential. Our Drop-In Center, located in Suffolk County, offers social and emotional supports through motivation, recreation and shared experiences. Most importantly, it is a community of people who are working together to achieve a common goal.

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE COORDINATION

Navigating the health care and social service systems can be challenging for individuals with complex chronic conditions. A significant percentage of Medicaid dollars are spent paying for inpatient care for this segment of the Medicaid population. WellLife Network will help you to access and manage services through improved care coordination and service integration between providers. This coordination is critical to managing health care costs and improving your health outcome.

ASSERTIVE COMMUNITY TREATMENT (ACT)

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a team-based treatment model that provides 24/7 multidisciplinary, flexible treatment and support to people with severe mental illness. ACT is rooted in the belief that people receive better care when their mental health care providers work together. It has been one of the most successful and profitable strategies for assisting individuals with mental illness for some 40 years.
