Drum Roll Please!
The PIMSY Practice Management Team is excited to continue its PIMSY Share Program, which provides complimentary EHR licenses to agencies doing amazing work in their community. This year’s recipient is Wyoming County Special Needs Association, which has dedicated its entire organization to enhancing the empowerment of individuals with mental health, intellectual disabilities, and autism.
We’re honored to support WCSNA in their mission:
“One in four people across the United States is living with some degree of mental illness every day. These are your family members, friends, coworkers, teachers, sales clerks. You interact with them every day, in your regular routine. Most people don’t vocalize their illness, as they are ashamed and afraid of the stigma and discrimination that may occur, preventing them from taking advantage of services and supports that are available to them from agencies across the country.
4.6 million people are living with an intellectual disability every day. They too are subjected to discrimination and the stigma that deters them from vocalizing their condition and taking advantage of the resources that are available to them from agencies across the country.
The Wyoming County Special Needs Association is one of the many agencies across the country providing those services and supports. We dedicated our entire organization to enhancing the empowerment of individuals with mental health, intellectual disabilities, and autism. Our organization provides a wide array of services, the consumers in our local area as well as surrounding counties within the Commonwealth. These services and supports that assist consumers with day to day living, and help to reduce the stigma that these consumers face every day. We provide the following services to increase the supports and services of consumers within our coverage area:
This service is provided to individuals, groups, couples and families to increase insight, modify behaviors, provide positive supports, improve social interaction, and properly handle adjustments and much more.
This service is provided to individuals living in private homes for the limited purpose of providing supervision and assistance directed towards the health and safety of an adult with intellectual disabilities.
In Home Respite / Family Aide
This service is provided to supervise and support individuals living in private homes on a short-term basis during times when their primary caretaker is absent or needs relief.
Home & Community Habilitation
This service is provided in home and community settings to assist individuals in acquiring, maintaining, and improving self-help, domestic, socialization, and adaptive skills needed to reside successfully in home and community-based settings.
PIMSY EHR is providing the Wyoming County Special Needs Association with the software and support to more effectively carry out our mission, as well as increase our efficiency in the areas of scheduling, and documenting encounters with our clients.”
