The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program at ALTA works to assist individuals who have experienced multiple severe episodes of mental illness to reach a higher level of independence through Case Management, Life Skills training, structured individual and group activities.
The PRP program assists consumers with accessing and coordinating services and resources in their communities needed to lead meaningful lives.
Our goal is to assist individuals with the transition from a long period of hospitalization to successfully re-entering the community, and to assist those individuals already in the community with maintaining and enhancing their skills.
Our PRP services are collaborative, client-directed and individualized.
