Appleseed Community Mental Health Center
Appleseed provides comprehensive services for residents of Ashland County, including mental health services, community programs, youth services, and crisis intervention -- including the IFAST (Integrated Family and Systems Treatment) program. The IFAST model supports viewing individuals and families through a trauma informed lens. Rather than focusing on a diagnosis, disability, or medication, the model helps Appleseed staff strengthen naturally occurring and important relationships in people’s lives as the primary means for them to overcome their difficulties. Appleseed staff work with parents, grandparents, guardians, or other significant people in the lives of their clients to change patterns of negative or dysfunctional ways of living and replace them with positive, healthy behaviors.
