Services within PROS
There are four service components that individuals can receive within the PROS program:
Community Rehabilitation and Support Services (CRS): Designed to engage and assist individuals in managing their lives and restoring skills and support necessary for being successful within their community. Some of the servicesunder this component include assessment, wellness, self-management, benefits and financial management.
Intensive Rehabilitation (IR): Provided individually or in small groups, Intensive Rehabilitation (IR) is used when the participant is ready to take a step toward reaching a specific goal that is difficult, or they need support to maintain progress they have already made. IR also uses targeted interventions that help reduce risks, involvement in the criminal justice system, loss of housing, or loss of a valued life role. If the participant has a relapse in mental health symptoms or substance use, Intensive Rehabilitation can help them focus on their goals.
Ongoing Rehabilitation and Support (ORS): Offering support and mental health treatment for employed individuals working in the community at least 10 hours per week. Ongoing Rehabilitation and Support staff can help participants manage symptoms that make it difficult to find and maintain employment.
Clinic Treatment (CT): A recovery-focused approach that can help participants overcome barriers that may be caused by their physical health, mental health and/or substance use disorder to help stabilize, alleviate and control psychiatric symptoms. Clinic Treatment includes nursing, counseling and medication management.
SUPPORTED EDUCATION PROGRAM
Supported education is designed to support individuals with mental illness to further their educational background. Possible goal direction may include acquisition of a High School Equivalency Diploma, pursuing an Associate’s, Bachelor’s or graduate level degrees, or vocational training.
SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
Supported employment assists individuals with psychiatric disabilities in securing and sustaining competitive employment in the community. An employment specialist determines the readiness of an individual and refers him or her to the program. A job developer markets the program to prospective employers and assists in matching positions with the individuals. An employment counselor provides on and off-site counseling, job coaching, advocacy and additional support services, as needed.
