Mental Health Maintenance Plan

worksheet

Much like your body requires a balanced diet and exercise to maintain its health, your mental health also needs attention. Many mental illnesses have a high chance of recurring, but proper maintenance can reduce these risks.

Using the Mental Health Maintenance Plan, your clients will identify areas that pose a risk of relapse, and then describe the strategies they can use to handle problems. These sections cover triggers, warning signs, self-care, and coping strategies. Finally, your client will be asked to describe what it would take for them to return to therapy. At what point would their problems require them to seek professional help?

This worksheet was designed to be used during the termination process, or in the sessions leading up to termination. The broad range of topics works well as a form of review, while emphasizing the idea that mental health requires ongoing care.
