Psychiatric Rehabilitation (PROS) is a rehabilitation treatment program based on the recovery and person-centered models of rehabilitation. Individuals are provided skills and support to embrace their mental wellness, to enhance the quality of their life and to pursue personally valued roles in their living, learning, work and social environments. Over 35 classes are offered during the week focusing on building hope in a positive and possible future, symptom management, coping strategies, people skills, development of transferable work and school skills to build readiness, vocational goal setting, wellness planning, problem solving, socialization skills and therapeutic creative expression.
This is an add-on service to primary mental health treatment provided by an individual’s therapist and a psychiatrist.
