Values Exercise

Do you find yourself or a loved feel out of sorts and question what you are doing with your life? Asking these questions is normal and can be an opportunity for self-evaluation. Are you living consistent with your values? This exercise can help you look at your values and reflect on the consistency between your values and your behaviors.

Mental Health Day Treatment

If you're an adult diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness, the Mental Health Day Treatment Program is another option for treatment. The program can teach independent living skills and offer support in the recovery process with emphasis on developing healthy coping skills. Services include:

  • Case management
  • Group therapies
  • Individual support
  • Leisure assessment/counseling/education
  • Medication monitoring/administration
  • Occupational therapy assessment/services

Patients are referred to Mental Health Day Treatment by their psychiatrist when appropriate for their individualized treatment plan.

Compassion Fatigue

If you care for others, it can be more of a calling than vocation. Presence, patience and empathy are the ground upon which the caregiver stands but it can be risky if you’re not caring for yourself. Compassion fatigue is a very real, painful reality for many caregivers but is treatable.

The recording Compassion Fatigue: The Therapeutic Paradox by Mark L. Taylor, MA, LPC, Gundersen Behavioral Health therapist, uses mindfulness psychology to provide a good first step in addressing compassion fatigue.
