Living with Mental Illness: Help from PROS
People coping with behavioral health issues can get help with developing life skills, managing symptoms and more. Our Personalized Recovery-Oriented Services (PROS) range from wellness self-management, to leisure planning and financial management. This rehabilitation and treatment program helps people succeed on their own, reducing the chances of relapse or hospitalization and any other event that threatens independence.
The members of the PROS team are trained to offer many kinds of ongoing support at Union Center in Middletown, Squire Center in New Windsor in Orange County and Millbrook Center, Rhinebeck Center, and Poughkeepsie Center in Dutchess County, Ulster County on Golden Hill.
A group home with 24 hour supervision for people with mental illness is only one option in Orange County, where the agency also offers a range of supported and certified treatment apartments. Counselors—some on site—are available to help with the skills necessary for community living.
Services for Children and Families
The Home and Community Based Services Waiver
We help children with serious emotional and behavioral challenges avoid long-term, out of home placement or psychiatric hospitalization. To qualify for the service, both the child and the family must meet certain eligibility requirements and be committed to receiving support and assistance to be successful in supporting the child at home.
Network Family Partners System of Care
Orange County families whose child has emotional, behavioral or social challenges that require a variety of services may benefit from this innovative approach. The people who staff the program have experiences of their own that help them build on the strengths of the individuals and families they work with.
Youth Educational School Services (YESS)
YESS will offer any Orange County resident up to 21 years of age services ranging from mentoring to educational advocacy and will protect their educational rights. In Sullivan County, YESS is funded to serve students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Transition Youth Services
Young adults with vulnerabilities can get help making the transition into adulthood. Care coordinators with sensitivity to social, emotional and behavioral needs help focus on identifying and connecting to the right community supports.
We are proud to host and support VoicesUnited4Change, which is made up of people of all ages dedicated to supporting and advocating for young people. The focus is on helping youth and family members become advocates, learning how to become engaged in promoting programs that work and changing what does not. The simple but powerful idea that inspires this group is that people who receive care have a valuable role to play in improving the way help is offered.
