COLLABORATIVE & INNOVATIVE
Clinical & Support Services
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Through our Clinical and Support Services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Guide Services Network, and a source of much success for our Integrative (Holistic) Behavioral Health Organization. Our clinical and support team is interdisciplinary and our focus is maximizing the health of the total person, to ultimately empower him/her to be an agent of positive change for family, community, and our challenging world. At GSN, we believe that maximized health and wellbeing should and can be a lived reality for all...one person at a time.
Keys 2 Success Power Up
SUCCESS SKILLS BUILDING OUTREACH
This is a youth and young adult initiative that targets the building of socio-emotional and behavioral choice-making skills for maximized success in all areas of our youths' lives. Our approach is integrative (wholistic) and interdisciplinary for serving our youth. This means that we engage the valued input of the institutions (e.g., schools), community agencies, families, and, most assuredly, their families in devising the needed success plan and associated activities and supports for optimizing our youths' success in their lives, everyday and in every way.
Consistent with our organization’s core value, our programming seeks to “level the playing field that all may succeed...irrespective of their background or socio-economic standing”. Furthermore, our team, consisting of clinical health/mental health professionals and a rich network of community-focused leaders and grass roots volunteers, pride ourselves in executing programs that strike the balance between the educational, the recreational, and inspirational aspects of motivating and empowering youth and young adults (primarily between the ages of 15-21) for enhancing their competencies for success, discover their passion, and further develop the different sides of themselves for meeting diverse challenges in an increasingly diverse and often complex world.
Community-Based Program Development & Evaluation
TACKLING THE ISSUE
The ongoing experience of personal empowerment and community transformation, particularly in the areas of public health and social change, necessarily involve engagement of individuals, small groups as well as engagement of the community agencies and systems in the challenging process of change. Our way of supporting and even encouraging such transformation at the systems and population levels is through provision of technical support and consultation, specifically designed to facilitate development of innovative community based public health/social change programs as wells as enhance effectiveness of existing program services through use of evidence-based techniques and practices.
Integrative Health Education, Training, & Certification
DOING WHAT’S NEEDED
For health professionals (and community influencers) who desire to enhance their skills for human service delivery through use of our integrative behavioral health approach to teaching, motivating, and facilitating transformation in the lives of the people, agencies, and other groups being served. Most of our efforts pertaining to our education and training programs involve incorporation of new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate the success of our work by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements. The experience of our education, training, and certificate programs are known to transformative for participants - that is, participants have experienced personal transformation in their process of learning how to assist others with inside/out transformation.
