Comprehensive Outpatient Acquired Brain Injury Services

Mentis Neuro Health’s outpatient therapy programs combine traditional discipline-specific therapies (such as physical or speech therapy), a framework of neuroplastic support activities (such as enhanced exercise and nutrition) and quality-of-life initiatives that support individuals’ unique needs.

Our therapeutic interventions are based on the latest research in neuroplasticity and brain injury recovery. We provide highly trained professional staff, support for family members and provide an environment that promotes confidence, advocacy and hope. Our approach is singularly adept at helping our patients expand their abilities and prepare to lead meaningful lives.

If you or someone you love is interested in learning more about our outpatient services listed below, please contact us at 855-921-7978 or mentisinfo@neurorestorative.com for more information.

We also coordinate with community resources throughout our facilities for other services as needed, from yoga and acupuncture to nutritional consultations and more.

Our physical therapy offering does much more than simply help a person recover from the physical aspects of their brain injury. Mentis physical therapists work closely with recovering individuals to understand their physical capabilities and maximize their abilities at home and within their community. Every effort is made to help patients embrace physical exercise as an important and regular component of life since research shows that aerobic conditioning may play a significant role in increasing the ability of the brain to change through experience (cortical plasticity). This approach takes a patient beyond the concept of being disabled.
Mentis’ occupational therapy helps individuals regain control and self-management over activities that they were previously able to do for themselves. This type of therapy helps patients with every day chores such as:

  • Self-care
  • Clothing Management
  • Meal Planning and Preparation
  • Home Management
  • Money Management
  • Safety Awareness
  • Community Integration
  • Pre-Vocational Skills
  • Durable Medical Equipment Assessment and Training
  • Family Education and Training

Our occupational therapists provide consistent emotional support and help the patients rebuild as much as possible while learning to accept support from others when needed.

Our speech therapists understand the devastating impact of losing speech and language skills. We help patients with the mechanics of communication as well as reaching out to each other, their families and future support systems. We understand that even individuals with severe communication impairments can and must learn ways to create and sustain relationships. Further, our speech therapists help patients with:

  • Voice and Swallowing Skills
  • Articulation
  • Language Expression
  • Language Comprehension
  • Social Skills Training
  • Academic Preparation
  • Family Education and Training
  • Augmentative Communication Device Utilization
While our cognitive therapists may work one-on-one with individuals, much of this therapy’s impact comes from co-treatment and group situations. By emphasizing self-awareness and awareness of his/her environment throughout the day, each patient can eventually maximize his/her ability to self-monitor and, thus, appropriately adapt to changing conditions. Managing themselves, their responsibilities and even problems are critical skills needed to lead an independent and satisfactory life. Our cognitive therapists help patients, their families and other staff to support the re-emergence of these skills. Areas of focus include:

  • Enhancement of Self-Awareness
  • Problem-Solving Methods
  • Behavioral Control
  • Medication Self-Management
  • Time and Task Management
  • Compensatory Technologies
  • Family Education and Training
Lives are always much more complex than the snapshot captured by an individual’s medical records. Cognitive strengths and weaknesses, psychiatric issues and existential concerns combine to make complicated pasts and uncertain futures. Our psychologists and neuropsychologists work to help individuals fully understand their current situations, accept the losses endured, commit to future goals and transcend their limitations. Services include:

  • Psychological and Neuropsychological Evaluations
  • Dual Diagnosis Consultation and Treatment
  • Cognitive Remediation
  • Grief and Adjustment Counseling
  • Psychotherapy
  • Relaxation Technique Training
  • Pain Management
  • Addictions Counseling

Truly, we consider the past but look to the future for each individual’s goals.
