Mental Health Services

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt Community Involvement Programs (CIP) we provide a range of mental health services to adults with severe and persistent mental health problems. Our services are designed to promote wellness and recovery, with an emphasis on psychiatric rehabilitation.

Psychiatric rehabilitation focuses on using a person’s strengths to develop coping strategies to address challenges in problem solving, social interactions, and daily living. Each program participant works with a team to develop a support plan and identifies services that will address his or her needs. We provide the following mental health services and supports.

Shared and Individualized Housing

These affordable housing opportunities provide individuals with mental illness a place to live. Support services provided by a mental health worker are provided in Shared Housing. Other services may be an option for people in Individualized Housing.

Adult Foster Care

Adult foster care can be a great housing option for those with serious and persistent mental health issues that require day and night supervision. Additional benefits include medication monitoring and transportation.

Independent Living Skills (ILS)

The mission of ILS is to empower participants to take on more responsibility for day-to-day living. We provide support, training, assistance and even supervision to help participants achieve their goals of self-reliance.

Home Health Services

This support option provides participants with help in their own homes. A nurse visits the participant on a regular basis to assist with medication management and education, and to asses the participant’s mental health and stability.
