We believe people, who have a serious mental illness, can recover, and we believe that hope enables growth and change to occur. Thus, our services are hope-filled, recovery oriented, and designed to help those with a mental illness reach their goals and dreams and live meaningfully in our community.
Psychiatric services include psychiatric evaluation, medication evaluation, and follow-up. Two Board Certified Psychiatrists and a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner-Board Certified are available to meet the psychiatric needs of our consumers. Psychiatric evaluation and treatment services are provided through a partnership with SIU Center for Family Medicine.
We help those, who have a serious mental illness, manage their illness, engage in the community, and realize their hopes and dreams. Services include case management (support and linkage to other helpful resources in our community), Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP), and vocational placement and support services.
