The COMPASS Mobile Medication Program is a voluntary mobile services program for adults living in Schuylkill County who have been diagnosed with serious and persistent mental health challenges and who are experiencing difficulties progressing through their recovery journey due to inconsistent adherence to and/or lack of education relating to one’s prescribed medication regimen.
“When people find managing their medications to be challenging, this can lead to increased symptoms, mental health crisis and hospitalization,” said Program Director Courtney Uhl. “COMPASS combines recovery principles, wellness coaching, psychiatric rehabilitation skill development and medication education.”
Individuals in the COMPASS program have seen a decrease in hospitalizations and reported more success in managing symptoms, decreasing the use of emergency crisis services and increasing involvement in their community.
Members of the COMPASS Program Mobile Medication team will be a consistent resource and liaisons between the prescriber and the individual to help establish effective communication and advocacy.
