Your Health is Our Priority - We Will Discuss Your Needs Confidentially

Primary Mental Health Intervention

Chris Bennett Interventions is a uniquely qualified group of professionals in a position to provide intervention services to those families and individuals who are suffering from the depths of mental illness; chronic and/or acute pathology related to the symptoms of various disorders. We have been specifically educated, trained and clinically supervised providing some of the most challenging and difficult interventions for individuals with schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, bi-polar disorder, borderline personality disorder, personality disorders and any other Axis-I or Axis-II diagnoses. We utilize professional consultation services by a well known and innovative Licensed Clinical Psychologist in SanDiego when performing primary mental health intervention services.

When you take away the drugs, alcohol or mental illness- take a look at the behavior of the individual.  The behavior seen in dealing with addiction is very similar to the behavior with a mental illness.  This includes isolation, strange and unpredictable behavior, outbursts, lack of motivation towards life goals and various behaviors that are out of the norm for society. What happens within a family system dealing with mental illness is that the afflicted individual becomes the executive of the family.  They run the household, they control others actions, everyone is walking on egg shells as to not disturb the individual out of fear of what may happen. This is no way to live but we become all consumed with trying to figure out how to create the “perfect” environment for our loved one to live in; that way the illness will “be okay.” Without taking action towards getting someone the help that they need, the disorder will not only continue but progressively become worse. We are here to help!

IRI’s process of intervention for severe mental illness was developed as a result of a previous understanding of the Johnson Model of Intervention.  In turn, techniques were extrapolated that had already been utilized successfully in containing severe mental illness symptoms in an intensive therapeutic community setting and integrated into the formal intervention process. Chris Bennett Interventions utilizes these specific skill sets and techniques that we used on a daily basis to contain and diffuse active psychosis, mania, severe depressive symptoms, violent outbursts and other behavioral actions in the moment. This allows the suffering individual the opportunity to accept love and support being provided by their family.

Many times with mental illness, it can be more difficult to determine whether or not to intervene because we are worried about the dangerous or out of control reaction we are going to get.   Mental illness causes intense fear in the family, as well as trauma, guilt, shame and anxiety. You are not alone. We at Chris Bennett Interventions understand the specific challenges of mental illness, the effect it has on the family system and the difficulty with determining what to do with our loved one.  They clearly are in need of help and support that the family, on its own, is not in a position to provide.

Many families that Chris Bennett Interventions has worked are willing to discuss what it was like for them to intervene on their loved one.  They would love to spread their support and encouragement for someone going through a similar experience.

Please give us a call for a free consultation to discuss your individual situation. We will also provide you with supportive families to talk with, if interested, who have gone through similar situations who can give an in depth look into what the family goes through during this process.
