What human behavioral organization will you be working for?
I would like to seek employment with an behavioral organization called the “FEI Behavioral Health Family Enterprises, Inc. FEI has a thirty year history since 1979 and is one of the largest behavioral health companies in the United States. FEI has two locations the main office located in Milwaukee and another office in New York. The first in behavioral health, FEI established the first network Employee Assistance Program with the Xerox Corporation in 1979, FEI also established the first national managed care program for substance abuse with the General Motors Corporation in 1984, and the first to offer integrated EAP and Work-Life programs in 1990. FEI provides comprehensive services to help individuals improve their life, person and family issues and their behavioral and physical health. FEI is a for profit company that works with corporate customers. FEI help their customers mange crises. A call center is in place to handle inquiries , some customer may assistance representatives and crisis support coordinators to assist.

Crisis Management services has: Family assistance representatives (FAR) on hand to provide services and on site support in the event of an mass disaster support is given to victim families, survivors, and survivors families also providing emotional support, travel and lodging. Crisis Support Coordinator: crisis intervention, individual,group and organization consultation, and support for FEI customers.

FEI Behavioral Health is part of Families International (FI) four organizations (Three of the organizations are nonprofit) that work closely together but each is a separate entity. I see Families International as having a human service as well as a public health model of interventions to social problems and issues used by FEI. I also see the levels of prevention as being primary, secondary and tertiary in their delivery of services,reading from the case studies on FEI’s website services are needed when in the early stages and when a dysfunctional behavior has already been established.
