Psychiatric Rehabilitation

Park Center believes that people who have mental illness can live and work successfully in the community. Park Center provides a comprehensive and dynamic program of recovery for people who have severe and persistent mental illness.

Psychiatric Rehabilitation

Individuals who attend Park Center are called “members” because they elect to attend the program and work toward their own recovery. Park Center believes in responding to individuals' strengths and abilities, rather than their illness. Through employment training, educational groups and peer support, Park Center is able to provide a compassionate and safe atmosphere to maximize opportunities for recovery.

Goals of the program include providing members with the education and training they need to self-manage their illness and their lives; preparing members to work in the community; offering opportunities for peer support; and increasing an individual's independence.
