Public Notice:

At Familylinks, our priority remains the health and safety of our clients and our team, and we continue to take measures to protect against the spread of the COVID-19. Last week we made the decision to cancel all events and suspend volunteer activities until further notice. This week we have made the necessary modifications to our programs and services, in accordance with guidelines set by local and state government, so we can continue to serve individuals and families in western Pennsylvania.

As public health officials assess the risk, we are closely monitoring the spread of the virus and evaluating potential implications. We will continue to share all updates on our website and social media pages.

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has created a support and referral helpline for COVID-19. To review the details click here.

For the most up to date information regarding COVID-19, please visit the CDC website.

  

Mobile Mental Health Treatment

If you’re an older adult dealing with mental health issues, you might also have trouble getting to a therapist or counselor, because your physical or mental health limits your mobility. That’s where Mobile Mental Health Treatment (MMHT) helps.

Who is eligible?

  • Allegheny County residents age 55 and older who have a mental health diagnosis and are unable to receive services in a traditional setting
  • To be eligible, you must have Medical Assistance insurance.
  • A doctor will need to tell us that this service is medically necessary.
  • Not sure if you qualify? Call us and we’ll help you figure it out!

What can you expect?

After an initial evaluation:

  • A therapist will come to your home to help you establish goals and provide weekly therapy.
  • Your therapist will help to connect you with other psychiatric services, if necessary, as well as community resources to support you in reaching your goals.

  • Services are delivered on a flexible schedule that meets the client’s needs.
