Who is on the OnTrackNY Team?
In many treatment settings, participants work with just one mental health professional, but with OnTrackNY, your loved one will have the support of an entire team to work with toward achieving his/her life goals. The team consists of an outreach and recruitment coordinator who will introduce the team and help decide if the program is a good fit, a primary clinician who will offer counseling and support and help your loved one learn new skills to cope with what s/he is experiencing, a psychiatrist who can collaborate with your loved one to make decisions related to medication and help with medical concerns, a peer specialist who shares lived mental health experiences, social tools, and resources to better navigate recovery, a supported education/employment specialist who can help with work and school, and a nurse to support overall health and wellness.
The participant and family members are the most important members of this team. Your loved one will work closely with the primary clinician and other staff to identify goals that are important to him/her and services that can help with accomplishing these goals.
