This service assists people with a mental illness to choose, get and keep valued roles in the community such as employee, tenant or student. Working through a step-by-step process with a Rehabilitation Worker, people learn skills and make the changes necessary to be successful and satisfied.
What is Rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation is more than just finding a job, home, school, or a place to meet people. It is helping people to recover or discover meaningful roles in life. Rehabilitation staff work with individuals to select a place to live, learn, work or socialize from the broadest range of possibilities based on personal preferences, interests and skills. The person has an opportunity to develop wellness plans, gain self-awareness and insight about recovery, learn how to problem solve an issue before a crisis develops, and respond to and manage stress. The development of the right skills, resources and supports are important once the person begins their new role so they can achieve success in it.
The first step is attending an Information Session.
The purpose of the Information Session is to provide information about the service to help people decide if they would like to apply. Some of the things that are discussed include:
The Information Session takes about 45 minutes and applications are available at the end of the session for those interested in the service. A clinical reference form is also provided at the session with instructions on how to complete it. An individual intake is provided on a later date, once an application is processed.
