Mental Health Skill Building

An Independent Living Training Program

Our Mental Health Skill Building program provides training to clients with significant mental illness. The focus of this program is on training the client. It is not a clinical, preventative or crisis program. This training covers both functional skills and appropriate behavior. We focus on helping the client learn to live independently, as appropriate, by teaching life skills with a focus on daily activities, health, nutrition, medication management and safety. This program works towards supporting the client to become stable in the community and use community resources.

This program is appropriate for older clients and adults who have significant mental illness that impairs their ability to manage themselves in the home and may be placed in an out-of-home facility if left untreated. Clients may have a DSM IV diagnosis or documented mental health needs. Referrals are made from the Department of Social Services, Adult Protective Services, Community Services Boards, psychiatric institutions, physicians, court order, assisted living facilities, independent living facilities, and self-referral.
