Adult Community Based Services

MHA’s Adult Community-Based Services work to promote the health and well-being of adults who have a serious mental illness by helping the individual manage their illness in order to lead a healthy, productive life. Services and treatment plans are individualized to promote recovery and independence. We promote increasing community engagement, enhancing personal relationships while building coping strategies and daily living skills.

Support includes:

  • Sharing experiences and creating new strategies related to individual goals.

  • Regaining the ability to make independent choices and taking a pro-active role in treatment.

  • Accessing new resources and enhancing natural resources to build a network for information and support.

  • Implementing the expansion of skills and attempt to practice those skills in the community to move forward in the recovery process.
