What is MHANYS CarePath™?

MHANYS CarePath™ is a blueprint for achieving and maintaining better overall health and wellness. MHANYS CarePath™ is appropriate for anyone who experienced a mental health setback and is interested in learning more about achieving and maintaining mind-body health. Managing behavioral health conditions often goes beyond what traditional treatment and discharge planning can accommodate. MHANYS CarePath™ is designed to assist individuals over 12 years of age and their family members or other identified supporters for 90 days. MHANYS CarePath™ supports recovery and protects the integrity of health within a family. MHANYS CarePath™ encourages healthy connections amongst family, friends, and within the community – be it job, school, or other associations. Our health and wellbeing is never in
isolation of others.

What is the role of a MHANYS CarePath™ Coach?

A MHANYS CarePath™ Coach facilitates person-centered planning as each person defines their own health and wellness with an understanding that the process in recovery is understood as existing on the continuum of wellness. MHANYS CarePath™ participants learn together about the eight dimensions of health and the interconnectedness of all the dimensions of their health, MHANYS CarePath™ participants select support tools designed to enhance their mind-body health and identify options that support healthy lifestyle choices and build resilience together.

CarePath™ Testimonials

“When my husband and I agreed to participate in MHANYS CarePath™ Program, we were interested in supporting our son in his recovery. We had no idea how the CarePath™ would support our own health and our other children. Our family is grateful for the CarePath™ Program.”

“CarePath™ is family-centered with a holistic wellness lens that is strength-based, trauma-informed and is delivered within a structured system that can be evaluated for its efficacy.”
