This program consists of an inter-disciplinary Treatment Team that works in conjunction with community agencies, your physician, your family and you. A mental health clinician will assist the you in developing your individual goals and work with you to monitor your success.
Joining a Day Program to help you manage your symptoms is a form of treatment. Attending and participating in groups programs during recovery from a mental illness is proven to be very effective for many people.
