Recovery

Recovery is a word families seldom hear from treatment providers and communities when talking about their experience with mental health disorders. Parents and caregivers hear a lot about symptoms, behaviors, failures, managing medications, and treatments, but it is rare that anyone ever shares a vision of hope and healing. As a result, many families come to us feeling lost, especially when it seems all resources have been exhausted to help the one they love.

At Lookout Mountain Care Management Entity (LM CME), we understand this process is often difficult and sometimes it feels like there is no hope left. Many of our staff have personal experience as individuals or family members of individuals who live with mental health needs. While each family’s journey is different, many of us understand the struggles that come with working with systems that were not created with our needs in mind. We also know the frustration and isolation that come from the stigma and misunderstanding around mental health.

Even though the journey can be challenging, we believe recovery is possible, not only for our loved ones, but for our families as well. Recovery is not only the goal, but it is the expectation for children and families whose lives are touched by mental illness.

It is an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of your family's journey to recovery. Our hope is to not only help your family envision what recovery looks, but to also assist you in building a support system that will help you achieve your family dreams, now and for years to come.
