Welcome!

We are excited to announce the official launch of Transitions Talks!

Transitions Talks is a video series designed to answer some of the most common questions about mental illnesses. It is our hope that these videos educate the public and provide guidance to individuals and families seeking answers to their questions about mental health. We would like to extend a special thank you to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend for providing funds to support this project. 

Check out our new series: Transitions Talks!

Scott County Mental Health Court initiative

We are in the 6th month of our participation in the Scott County Mental Health Court initiative. 
By providing case management, counseling and therapy services, psychiatric services, employment, and group services, we are already making a significant difference in the lives of men and women in the court system who are struggling with mental illnesses.

In addition to the individual lives being positively impacted, we are excited about the impact this will have on our community.

Transitions providing trauma-Informed Care training

Transitions MHS has been an active partner with the Eastern Iowa-Western IL Trauma Informed Consortium since its inception, November 2013, in its efforts to help make the Quad Cities a 'trauma informed community'.  We are a strong believer in the research that is transforming communities across the nation in understanding 'toxic stress' and the emerging data on how exposure to poverty, domestic and community violence and early life stressors affects the developing brains and bodies of children and adults.  Since 2014, TMHS has been an integral player in bringing TIC training to community organizations and school districts.  Since November of 2015, Transitions has worked closely with Rock Island School District on their innovative planning to make their school programs and staff more 'trauma informed'.

To learn more about how TMHS can bring TIC to your organization or school, contact Anne McNelis, LCSW - Clinical Director at amcnelis@transmhs.org or 309-283-1201.
