The Unity House PROS program can help!
What is PROS? The acronym stands for Personalized Recovery Oriented Systems. It’s a program designed to be a person-centered path to recovery for adults with mental illness. Unity House’s program is available for those seeking a holistic approach in their recovery with mental illness.
The Mayo Clinic defines mental illness as “… a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviors. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time” (Oct, 2015). Unfortunately, the term ‘mental illness’ can carry a stigma that turns many people away from getting the help they need; even though many people have mental health concerns.
The team in the Unity House PROS program can help. They offer classes on a wide variety of common barriers that interfere with people reaching their personal goals. Staff do not create goals for program participants. Rather, they help people establish their own goals and help people in pursuit of these goals.
Staff in the Unity House PROS program includes a licensed social worker, licensed mental health counselors, supported employment specialists, a registered nurse, and peer advocates.
