Mental Health

Easterseals Louisiana assists individuals living with chronic mental illness by providing safe and affordable housing and mental health stability with the goal of improving function within a community, social interaction, employment, and gaining independence. Our trained mental healthcare staff understands the needs and challenges faced by individuals living with mental illness.

Easterseals' Mental Health Services specifically target children and adults living with severe and persistent mental illness, who appear to be eligible for Medicaid/SSI benefits based on their income, but who have otherwise failed to qualify for those benefits on their own. An Easterseals mental healthcare staff member will guide individuals with mental illness through the application process and follow through with the person in need to ensure that the desired services and resources are obtained.

If the crisis is severe an activation of the CART or MACS mobile team may be necessary to provide clinical consultation to ensure the identified crisis is resolved.

The mobile crisis team provides the following services:
