Open Arms works one-on-one with participants to develop and monitor plans based on individual interests, goals, strengths, and needs.
Services through Open Arms Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) for Adults are designed to complement, support and strengthen the mental health (Therapy and Psychiatry) services the adult is already receiving.
Trained rehabilitation staff provide a combination of individual and group rehabilitation activities at Open Arms office, at the adult’s home and/or other appropriate community locations. On Site (office) and Off Site (in-home) services are family focused, individualized and based on the adult’s and the family’s strengths and resilience. Specific rehabilitation goals are established, which target identified needs based on information from the referring mental health professional, a comprehensive assessment and meetings with the child and his/her family. PRP staff routinely evaluate each child’s progress and provide updates to the referring Mental Health professional, the family or guardian and other mental health professionals working with the adult.
Psychiatric Rehabilitation Assessment – upon admission to the program, trained rehabilitation staff meet face to face with the adult and his/her family, guardian or care-taker to complete a functional skills assessment, designed to identify each child’s strengths, skills and psychiatric rehabilitation needs.
