Kettering Health expands mental health services in Dayton by enhancing and broadening care offerings

Kettering Health Behavioral Medicine has recently expanded its mental health services to include an Intensive Outpatient Program at its Miamisburg location. This expansion was done in order to better meet the needs of residents in south Dayton who may be struggling with mental health issues. The goal of the program is to provide consistent access to high-quality mental health services in response to the ongoing mental health crisis in the community.

Julie Manuel, the clinical program manager at Kettering Health Behavioral Medical Center, highlighted the importance of this expansion in providing patients with better access to the mental health system and their diagnosis. The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to be comprehensive and individualized, focusing on areas such as mood management, interpersonal interactions, triggers, destructive impulses and behaviors, personal goals, and coping skills. Patients will participate in both group and individual sessions with trained clinicians throughout the program.

Mike Rabuka, the administrative director of Kettering Health Behavioral Medical Center, emphasized the importance of making behavioral health services easily accessible in the community. This expansion allows for better collaboration between care teams, which can lead to a smoother behavioral health care journey for patients and potentially reduce the need for emergency visits and hospitalizations.
