The goal of Day Treatment is to reduce or relieve the effects of mental illness and provide training to enable recipients to live in the community with improved functioning at work, school, and/or social relationships. Treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals and practitioners under the supervision of a Qualified Clinical Supervisor. Therapeutic interventions include: Mindfulness skills education and practice, Motivational Interviewing, Illness Management and Recovery, Integrated Dual Diagnosis Strategies, Social skills education and practice, and Group Psychotherapy.  Intake and start date are typically within 2-4 weeks of referral dependent on current available Diagnostic Assessment.
