We Cope

The We Cope program provides evaluation and recommendations for treatment which may include counseling, medications and additional resources to help you to cope with stress and heal emotionally. 

We have learned that the most effective treatment occurs when everyone works together. We Cope participants will be assigned a Care Manager, trained in Psychology who will get to know you and advocate for your needs, track your progress and make sure your doctor knows how you are doing. Care managers are master's level psychology students who are supervised by licensed mental health professionals. The We Cope team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, and nurse practitioners. We have included modules on this website that you can work through with your care management team. Please feel free to utilize all of the resources provided on this website.
