Did you catch this article in the Albany Times Union about the Unity House PROS Program?
PROS stands for Personalized Recovery Oriented Systems. The program is for adults living with mental illness and the approach is an empowering one. Since it is often the person living with mental illness who is in the best position to recognize the barriers in their lives to success, they are also the best ones to tailor a plan to overcoming those barriers to achieve their goals.
You could say the Unity House PROS Program has a “Can-Do” attitude: rather than telling someone what they should or cannot do based on a mental health diagnosis, an individual can work with a team of support to map out strategies to achieve personal goals. The program celebrates that each path is as unique as each person.
Consider reading the article for one man’s experience and see for yourself if PROS might be a good fit for you or a loved one living with mental illness. To learn more about the Unity House PROS program, call Harlan Hall at (518) 274-2607, ext. 4172.
