Rehabilitation Services for Adults

Rehabilitation services for adults provide comprehensive, individualized and need-based rehabilitation services to promote independence and improve the quality of life for adults with severe and persistent mental illness. The program provides education and support that is guided by a range of assessments and individualized rehabilitation plans. In addition, the Program offers specialized vocational and supported housing services tailored to the needs of the individual. Patients are encouraged to take a leadership role in the program activities and services.

Community Support Services

Many individuals with mental illness experience difficulty being included in the community and accessing community resources. Community support services include teaching community living skills, advocating for individuals and families, coordinating the delivery of mental health services with services provided by other mental health agencies, providing individualized guidance and support and monitoring progress in organized treatment programs. In order to be included in the community, individuals are assisted in filling valued social roles such as worker, student, neighbor, voting citizen, church member, volunteer, spouse, and parent.
