Our Community Resource Program is designed to teach patients how to break barriers outside of the office, where they live day to day life. From helping someone learn more about their illness in an effort to better understand and manage it, to learning how to effectively and confidently use public transportation. Staff in Southwestern’s Community Resource Program’s (CSP) are actively engaged in helping individuals regain a sense of self and self-worth.
The debilitating effects of having severe and persistent mental illness are significant and comprehensive, even when positive symptoms are well managed. Many everyday tasks, most of us take for granted, are overwhelming or seem insurmountable. Through focused Skills Training, CSP staff strives to work with individuals to rebuild their lives one step at a time. The focus is to assist them in accumulating small victories to achieve a larger objective or goal.
All individuals seeking treatment services will receive an initial assessment of their needs and Southwestern’s ability to serve those needs. The goals for the intake assessment include; screening for any serious, life-threatening problems; determining the need for treatment and the level of care required; evaluating for impairments which could affect further assessment/treatment; obtaining enough information to develop a preliminary diagnosis, treatment plan, and treatment goals.
The intake process consists of completing a personal information form, a short interview with one of our skilled clinical staff, completion of a mental health scan and a functional assessment.
