Program Goals: We strive to educate each consumer on their illness and assist them in learning to recognize and obtain treatment for further relapses in their illness sooner than they have in the past (i.e. get treatment before they become psychotic as opposed to being admitted against their wishes as they had in their past) To encourage them to fill out an Advance Directive for Psychiatric Decisions.
Have any outcomes for this program been assessed through internal or external research? No
Additional Information: This is a free educational class to anyone in the public sector over the age of 18 with a mental illness that is stable. We recommend that they are seeing a therapist, in order to be able to process some information that is discussed in the class that might be difficult to deal with. We do have people available to talk with in case of some needed advocacy or just to talk.
