Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center has been rapidly expanding over the past year — since opening their second location in Bluffton last spring, the Center has also opened facilities on Hilton Head Island … and has recently opened a new Beaufort office. The new office is located at 14 Savannah HWY #23 Beaufort SC 29906.
In addition to providing residents throughout the Beaufort community with access to important, and affordable, mental health services, the new Beaufort office also works closely with Beaufort schools to provide students with important services. Through a contract with the Beaufort School District, Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center has programs in place to help children, adolescents and teens manage a variety of behavioral health and mental health issues to enhance their lives both at school, and at home.
In working with the Beaufort School District, Jamison Consultants works to triage, screen, refer or treat children enrolled in Beaufort County Schools who meet criteria and medical necessity for RBHS services. Jamison Consultants also provides an orientation to appropriate school staff, and provides an opportunity for parents and teachers to visit the afterschool program if applicable. Jamison Consultants also appoints representatives to work collaboratively on development of Individual Education Plans (IEPs) or 504 plans for students with disabilities, and assists the district in providing access to services for children with IEPs receiving RBHS services.
Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center’s partnership with the Beaufort School District, which started October 1st of this year. initially began in the district last November 2013 with one student. The success rate was 100% compliance and progress made after 6 months. The results gave Jamison the opportunity to prove that the services work — and the district realized that an outside agency with experience in specific mental illnesses and conduct disorders would aid in keeping children healthy and successful in school and life.
Through this partnership, Jamison Consultants works on individual goals with each child or family that is referred by the school social worker or guidance counselor. The family receives a full diagnostic assessment by a Licensed Professional Counselor and then recommendation for services will start. Based on the diagnosis such as conduct disorder, HR will hire, train and send a qualified professional out to the school to work one-on-one to redirect any negative behaviors with the student and encourage the positive behaviors. Jamison Consultants also provides home and family support to the parent/guardian based on their individual needs as well.
We are excited about the launch of our new Beaufort office and the opportunity to serve local residents through this new facility, and pleased to be working closely with Beaufort schools to help students and families in need of our services improve their quality of life.
