Momentum is a partial outpatient program designed to help increase the functionality and stability of adults with serious mental illness.
The professionals at St. Luke’s Behavioral Health Center understand that dealing with serious mental illness is a daily struggle. For some people, long-term assistance is needed. Momentum was created as an outpatient program uniquely designed to help stabilize and assist those dealing with serious mental illness. Our experienced and compassionate staff work with the client to set realistic personal goals. A treatment plan is then developed to help our clients successfully achieve their goals. Each step of the way, our team is here to help clients reach their highest level of mental, physical, social and spiritual well-being.
Our team of professionals includes a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, outpatient director, program director, community liaison, psychiatric nurse, and licensed therapists who work with each individual client throughout the Momentum program. Since the Momentum program offers long-term care, our clients have the added benefit of working with a care coordinator during their program. The care coordinator, who is a licensed master’s level therapist, works with each client to develop a successful treatment plan.
The Momentum Program is offered in two convenient locations, including the main campus in Central Phoenix and the East Valley Outpatient Center. Momentum is a partial outpatient program designed to help increase the functionality and stability of adults with serious mental illness.
