Mission Strengthening communities by improving health and safety, one family at a time.

At NorthCare we help change the lives of the most vulnerable in Oklahoma: children who’ve been abused or neglected, families in crisis, and individuals dealing with trauma, mental illness and addiction. NorthCare is a 501(c)3 providing services for Oklahoma and Logan Counties to anyone that walks through our door regardless of their ability to pay. We help those coping with severe psychological trauma, mental illness or addiction. NorthCare offers comprehensive and integrated health care (behavioral health and primary care) to individuals who would not otherwise have access to care. 

NorthCare is actively involved in collaborations to address the most serious issues facing our community. These collaborations result in more efficient outcomes when compared to organizations operating in isolation. We work closely with civic leaders, primary care providers, private foundations, law enforcement, the District Attorney, Public Defenders, and others to effectively address the consequences of untreated mental illness and addiction in the community. Left untreated, the diseases of mental illness and addiction disorders result in lower life expectancy, higher rates of incarceration and health care costs, increased child abuse/neglect, higher unemployment and homelessness.

Furthermore, NorthCare offers open access to services. No appointment is necessary in order to receive care from one of our mental health professionals. No other outpatient behavioral health organization in
the community provides the scope, accessibility and responsiveness of behavioral healthcare we offer.

NorthCare is certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services as a Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse provider and is licensed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services as a Child Placement agency. NorthCare has been a partner agency of United Way of Central Oklahoma since 2002.

As the healthcare safety net for individuals with trauma, mental illness and/or addiction disorders, NorthCare services include scientifically researched and proven interventions in behavioral health care, primary care, smoking cessation, nutrition, self-care and wellness. Truly transformational health outcomes in our community will only come from holistic and integrated approaches that focus on the mind and body.

Impact NorthCare tracks and measures performance outcomes consistently and systematically. Each month, the agency care for 6,000 to 7,000 adults and 3,000 children. NorthCare is achieving the following outcomes:

Individuals receiving services lived a healthier life, as evidenced by:

*50% reduction in substance use

*59% improved physical health

*62% improved self-care

*62% improved ability to meet basic needs

*53% improved social connection

Adults maintained stability in their community, as evidenced by:

*77% of adults experienced a reduction or prevention of inpatient psychiatric services

*75% of psychiatric hospital readmissions were prevented within six months of discharge

*71% of clients gained initial access to and engaged in outpatient services within seven days of discharge

*71% of clients gained access to a prescriber for medication to reduce or maintain behavioral health symptoms within 14 days

For children with child welfare involvement:

89% less likely to experience placement disruption (Family KINnections)
Needs NorthCare Family Treatment Center-$173,000.  The Family Treatment Center (FTC) is a residential substance abuse treatment facility for women and their children.  The program will be moving to a new location in early February 2020.  The facility needs new furniture, housewares, and supplies.  Funding is needed to buy all new beds, bed linens, rugs, public area furniture, playground equipment for the children, etc.  Please consider this important program that serves women exiting prison as well as diverting women from incarceration.  This FTC is certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

The Pete White Senior Wellness Center at 4021 S. Walker in Oklahoma City was funded through Maps 3 for capital costs. NorthCare is seeking partners to help cover the cost of membership for low income seniors. This will help sustain the program for the years to come. $150,000 will underwrite the cost of 500 low income seniors to access the facility and participate in wellness activities (swimming, healthy meals, crafts, indoor walking, lifting weights, fitness classes, etc.) $300,000 per year would underwrite 700 new memberships and 300 current members.

Description The Excellence in Mental Health Act demonstration established a federal definition and criteria for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). CCBHS are designed to provide a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use disorder services to vulnerable individuals. CCBHCs are responsible for directly providing (or contracting with partner organizations to provide) nine types of services,1 with an emphasis on the provision of 24-hour crisis care, utilization of evidence-based practices, care coordination and integration with physical health care. The program represents one of the largest investments in mental health and addiction care in the United States for decades. Comprehensive Care is Key. The service selection is deliberate, expanding the range of care available. CCBHCs provide a comprehensive collection of services needed to create access, stabilize people in crisis and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care and physical-behavioral health integration.
