ASI-NE is a non-profit organization that, along with many other non-profit organizations, independent agencies, and state government units, is part of the state mental health service system. There are agencies all over Maine that provide in-home support, as we do. Our work is licensed and regulated by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and paid for by MaineCare.
The mental health service system has many other services that may be helpful to you. Your case manager is the best resource for locating other needed services. Some of those services include:
- Community mental health centers—These offer talk therapy, family therapy, play therapy, group therapy, and psychiatric care for medication. Some centers provide psycho-education, which teaches families about different mental disorders and how best to handle family members with these disorders.
- Statewide Crisis Line (1-888-568-1112)—If you, your child or any other family member is in crisis, if you think you or they may harm themselves or others, if you are seeing a behavior you cannot handle on your own, you can call the Crisis Line 24 hours a day. Crisis workers can help you assess the situation and suggest immediate steps you can take. They can help you decide whether or not to consider hospitalization. They can help you access other services—respite beds or crisis units—that can provide support until the crisis has passed.
