Outpatient Mental Health Clinic
INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY, GROUP THERAPY, AND MEDICATION MANAGEMENT.
BTST Services, where A Better Tomorrow Starts Today, is dedicated to providing the highest level of comprehensive and accessible mental health treatment to children, adults and families in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Prince George's County and surrounding areas.
BTST’s Out Patient Mental Health Clinic (OMHC) provides on and offsite individual / family / group therapy and medication management. Services are initiated within days of the referral and are typically provided on a weekly basis but can vary in frequency according to clients needs.
We understand that for many underserved populations, lack of transportation can be a major barrier to participating in ongoing mental health treatment. As such, we provide transportation with our fleet of well maintained BTST shuttles and vans. At no cost to the client, we provide door to door service to and from medication appointments for all clients who do not otherwise have the means. We do so because, at BTST we believe that all people deserve access to health care no matter their socio-economic status.
On-site we welcome clients to our modern and well-appointed clinics where we provide therapy, psychological evaluations and medication management. Experience has taught us that many individuals seeking mental health services are frequently forced to receive treatment in clinics that are poorly maintained.
BTST clinicians come to homes, schools, and the community to bring therapy to the client’s door! We break paradigms and use innovative means to reach clients that may not fit the mold for conventional treatment
At BTST, we only hire the best licensed mental health therapist and counselors with licensures ranging from :
We believe in re-investing in our therapist which is why we equip them with the latest resources, technology and equipment needed to make service delivery more efficient and productive. All therapists attend individual and group supervision with a board approved supervisor.
In addition, our therapists actively participate in frequent case consultation and peer reviews with the Medical Director and other seasoned professionals. Clinical teams develop comprehensive treatment plans utilizing proven interventions to help clients overcome diagnosed mental health concerns such as depression, trauma, anxiety, ADHD and behavioral problems.
TYPES OF THERAPY
A process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you're done going to therapy sessions. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family's situation.
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which a group of patients meet in a supportive and encouraging environment. There clients will describe and discuss their symptoms and life circumstances together under the supervision of a licensed therapist.
We understand that when clinically necessary, medication management is an essential component for mental health treatment. Our doctors work with clients and therapists to develop a comprehensive plan to address medication needs.
At BTST we provide medication management with dignity and respect. Our Medical Director and psychiatrists are leaders in the field and are board certified to treat both children and adults. BTST psychiatrists are culturally competent and work diligently to not only prescribe medications but to also take the time to provide psycho-education to our clients and families.
