Behavioral Health Services
(current as of May 14, 2020 at 12:00 PM)
As the state of Ohio begins to reopen, we are working hard to navigate the best ways to contain the spread of COVID-19 and ensure employee and visitor safety.
Telehealth and virtual services will continue to be offered where possible.
Our headquarters and other locations remain closed to visitors except for a limited number of in-person services. Beginning this week, clients who receive some behavioral health services may receive those services in-person at our headquarters location with the following restrictions:
- All appointments must be scheduled in advance.
- Only the client with an appointment may enter the building. Exceptions include:
- A caregiver who is legally authorized to make decisions for the client;
- A support person for an individual with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities/limitations or cognitive impairment who requires assistance; and
- A support person for a client who has delirium and/or dementia where the presence of the visitor is necessary to reduce the client’s delirium, reduce the risk of falls or other injury and otherwise reduce the risk of medical or clinical harm.
- Visitors are required to wear a facial covering. Facial coverings (non-medical masks) will be provided to client and visitors who do not have one.
- Minor children are not permitted in BRIA locations. Children cannot be left unattended in vehicles on BRIA premises or BRIA parking lots.
Mental Health Day Treatment will continue to be provided through telehealth until further notice.

With the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) now established in Ohio, in order to safeguard our clients’ health, safety and well-being, the Mental Health Day Treatment program has temporarily suspended group service until further notice.

Behavioral Health Services from Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging can enhance the life of a loved one with mental illness by providing holistic mental health care, which will enable them to continue living in their homes or in the most comfortable environment to them. Our services are also available to caregivers of older adults in need of support and counseling.
With our assistance, you or your loved one will be empowered to manage mental or emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and hoarding disorder.
Our trained intake specialist will provide a comprehensive assessment to help you and your loved one determine the most appropriate behavioral health treatment, or other services from Benjamin Rose, that address their individual needs. During the intake process, payment options will be discussed, including approved insurance providers, such as Medicare and Medicaid plans. To be eligible to receive our Behavioral Health Services, you or your loved one must be aged 55 or older.
We are a member of the Mental Health & Addiction Advocacy Coalition (MHAC) and The Ohio Council of Behavioral Health & Family Services Providers, both of which support advocacy for your loved one’s mental health needs on a local and state level. We are also a member and co-chair of the Hoarding Connection of Cuyahoga County, and are a contract agency of the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board of Cuyahoga County.
We have received accreditation through CARF and are certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) to provide the following behavioral health services and activities:
Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS)
These intensive short-term services help enable a loved one with mental illness to continue to live in their home or in a comfortable environment to them.
Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment (CPST)
Our CPST services support a partnership between your loved one and their caseworker, helping to develop a person-centered treatment plan which will assist your loved one in managing their mental health conditions. The case manager can support your loved one in making connections to psychiatric and medical care, housing and other entitlements which will help improve their quality of life and independence. As a part of the treatment plan, a case manager will determine the number of sessions that are needed to address your loved one’s specific needs.
Our one-on-one counseling sessions provide support from licensed social workers to loved ones who are experiencing issues due to concerns such as chronic illness, trauma, grief, loss, relationship problems or ongoing mental health issues.
Mental Health Day Treatment - OFFERED THROUGH TELEHEALTH
This program is designed to provide intensive three-hour group therapy for a loved one living with a severe mental illness, or one who has been discharged from a psychiatric hospital but is still in need of intensive therapy.
The program consists of face-to-face group therapy provided by licensed mental health professionals who can address the individualized needs of your loved one such as:
- Mental health concerns
