WHAT IS PRP?
PRP is an acronym for Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program, which can be more easily described as therapeutic mentoring. This service is therapeutic as we work collaboratively with existing therapists on existing diagnoses.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
1. A referral is made by a licensed therapist/psychiatrist.
2. Once approved, a PRP counselor is assigned.
3. An intake and an Individual Rehabilitation Plan (IRP) is developed with the client and family.
4. The fun begins.
Counselors meet with clients weekly. Children – at least 4 times a month
Adults – at least 6 times a month
Visits rotate throughout the HOME, COMMUNITY, and the OFFICE.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR PRP?
Impact Lives Health Services PRP Program services children and adults ages 5-60 who have been diagnosis with a mental health disorder and are actively working with a therapist and/or psychiatrist. Children’s diagnosis can vary and with many being eligible for PRP services. However, adults have a smaller range of approved diagnosis which can be found on the Priority Population Chart below.
Impact Lives Health Services groups are designed to use creative activities to engage clients while teaching skills needed to manage their diagnosis and reduce maladaptive behaviors. An example of these groups include social skills, coping skills, communication, time management, family strengthening and healthy relationship skills. Impact Lives Health Services offers and coordinates themed groups with specific topics for each month. For example, February (love yourself), March Madness (anger management group), April Showers (hygiene group) and November (being thankful).
In addition to all planned groups, counselors often coordinate their own groups (onsite and offsite) covering various topics relating to the clients individual goals. These may include art expression, nature hikes, running groups and self-esteem scrap-booking. Impact Lives Health Services also provides reoccurring bi-weekly and monthly groups. These groups are provided by our staff and contractual professionals to bring fun and innovative programming to our clients while continuing to work on individual goals. Theses reoccurring groups are detailed below.
