Overview of Intake Services
An Intake is the starting point to receive outpatient behavioral health services at Valeo. During an Intake, a clinician will complete an initial mental health assessment to determine appropriate mental health services, and will make referrals after the completion of the assessment. Referrals may be made to individual and/or group therapy and medication evaluation. For those clients meeting eligibility requirements, referrals can also be made to case management services, psychosocial groups and employment and education services.
