Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP)
The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program is a community-based, supportive service provided in combination with monthly therapy sessions for individuals ages 5 and above. PRP aims to assist individuals with learning to independently navigate around how their mental, behavioral, and emotional stressors and symptoms impact their everyday lives — with family and friends at-home, at-work, in-school, and in the community.
