Getting Started at Peak Wellness Center
The first 6 steps on your path to greater mental health and wellness.
Today can be the first day of things getting better. Here’s how to begin.
1. Gather your required items
For your first visit with us, we ask that you bring along:
- Photo identification (driver’s license, State-issued ID card, military ID)
- Proof of income for all household family members (if requesting financial assistance)
- Insurance card (if applicable)
- Court documents (if applicable)
2. Drop by your local Peak office
Here at Peak, we have a walk-in intake process. We invite all clients to drop by during their local Peak office’s walk-in hours to get started!
- Albany County: Monday–Thursday, 9am–3pm
- Goshen County: Monday and Friday, 8am–6pm; Tuesday–Thursday, 8am–8pm
- Laramie County: Monday–Thursday, 8am–3:30pm
- Platte County: Monday–Friday 8am–noon; 1–5pm
3. Meet your care coordinator
Once you’re here, we’ll set you up with a compassionate and experienced care coordinator to help guide you through the new client process.
4. Complete paperwork
With help from your care coordinator, you’ll fill out your New Client paperwork. (If you’d rather, you can also download and complete the paperwork prior to your visit, using the links below.)
- New client application & health history [PDF]
- Confidential information release form [PDF] - authorization to share your health care information with persons you choose
- Solicitud de nuevos clientes y su historial de salud [PDF]
- Autorización para la divulgación de información confidencial [PDF] - a personas elegidas por usted
To provide affordable mental health care costs, we always consider each client’s income and expenses; if needed, your coordinator can help you complete our sliding fee application. (Learn more about our sliding fee scale here).
5. Complete a clinical assessment
Once your paperwork is complete, you’ll meet with one of our licensed therapists to complete a full clinical assessment. Please note: This assessment can take up to two hours. If you’re unable to stay for the full duration at your first visit, we’ll schedule this assessment for you at a later date.
6. Receive recommendations for treatment
Following your assessment, your clinician will make a recommendation for treatment; this may be individual therapy, groups, medication management, case management support, skill training, etc.
Before you leave, your clinician will also enroll you in the recommended services, and schedule a follow-up appointment with an individual therapist.
