A “person centered” recovery oriented service that assists individuals diagnosed with a mental illness to work towards greater independence and improved quality of life in the areas of everyday living, learning, working, socializing through recovery. Our PROS program (“Personalized Recovery Oriented Services”) is licensed by the NYS Office of Mental Health.
The inter-disciplinary team includes a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, psychiatric nurse, licensed clinical social workers and mental health counselors and employment specialists who provide a wide array of group and individual services in a supportive setting. As a Personalized Recovery Oriented Service (PROS), a new model that aims to promote recovery from a psychiatric or emotional condition, Jawonio emphasizes identifying and achieving a participant’s most important goals. With careful planning, empowering consumers, and increased staff resources, the PROS service is a more effective, creative model for a day program. Individuals can attend from 1 to 5 days per week to achieve specific life goals that the participant identifies. Emphasis is placed on achieving therapeutic goals while obtaining and employment.
If you or your loved one is over the age of 18, has a primary diagnosis of mental illness and would benefit from an intensive day program approach combining clinical, social and creative methods, we encourage you to seek more information from us.
