Menninger 360

Some individuals with mental health issues need intensive treatment, yet not necessarily in a hospital setting. Instead, they can benefit from a “hospital without walls,” which is what the Menninger 360 service offers.


360-exteriorThe only private psychiatric assertive community treatment (PACT) team in Texas, Menninger 360 features a team of experienced interdisciplinary mental health clinicians who offer clients 360-degree wraparound support, treatment and rehabilitation in their home and communities. The team’s philosophy is to do whatever it takes to help their clients take strides forward.

 

The team is mobile, helping clients work toward independence, develop and practice skills to manage their mental health concerns and achieve their goals, all outside of a hospital or an outpatient setting.


By working with clients in their homes and communities, the team helps them address real-world concerns in real time.

 

Menninger 360 is located at 2407 Waugh Avenue, Houston, TX 77006.

 

Goals

The primary goals of Menninger 360 are to:

  • Decrease or eliminate debilitating symptoms of mental illness so that clients have fewer recurring episodes of acute mental illness and hospitalizations
  • Improve clients’ abilities to function in social, community and professional roles and activities
  • Enhance clients’ quality of life
  • Lessen the family’s burden of providing care

Menninger 360 takes an individualized, proactive and pro-social approach to support and help clients live full, independent lives while managing their illness.


Who Can Benefit

Menninger 360’s mobility and completely individualized care accommodates a wide range of needs and situations, including:

  • Adults with severe, chronic mental illness, including schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders and bipolar disorder
  • Busy professionals whose schedule makes it difficult to leave their workplace for care while maintaining their professional duties
  • Adults whose symptoms make it difficult for them to participate in group-based treatment programs or who need sustained support for recovery from substance abuse
  • Individuals who experience significant disability
  • Those who have not been helped by traditional mental health services and need skills and practice in planning, interpersonal relationships, emotion expression, anxiety management as well as pursuing leisure activities and personal interests

Menninger 360 is currently available only to individuals in Houston.
