Psychiatric Rehabilitation Programs

Holistic Support for Children and Families

Personal Growth, Responsible Behavior & Positive Outcomes for Children & Adolescents

Overview

Services through Key Point's Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) for Children and Adolescents are designed to complement, support and strengthen the mental health (Therapy and Psychiatry) services the child is already receiving.

Trained rehabilitation staff provide a combination of individual and group rehabilitation activities at Key Point's clinics, at the child's home and/or other appropriate community locations.

On Site (facility-based) and Off Site (community-based) services are family focused, individualized and based on the child's and the family's strengths and resilience.

Specific rehabilitation goals are established, which target identified needs based on information from the referring mental health professional, a comprehensive assessment and meetings with the child and his/her family.

PRP staff routinely evaluate progress with each child and their parent/guardian/support team and  provide monthly summary reports to the primary therapist and other mental health professionals working with the child.

Services

Psychiatric Rehabilitation Assessment- upon admission to the program, trained rehabilitation staff meet face to face with the child and his/her family, guardian or care-taker to complete a functional skills assessment, designed to identify each child's strengths, skills and needs. 

Individual & Group Rehabilitation Activities- are designed to reduce functional behavioral impairments and develop and/or restore age-appropriate skills in a variety of areas, including:

- Self Care Skills
- Semi-Independent Living Skills
- Social/Interactive Skills
- Anger Management Skills
- Education
- Symptom Mangagement
- Accessing Community Resources
- Personal Safety
- Maintaining Age-Appropriate Boundaries
- Time Management

Children and their family members choose the services they want to receive (onsite, offsite or both) and the location where they want to receive them. Services are provided based on a monthly calendar of activities that typically include a combination of onsite and offsite services. Monthly program calendars are provided to all children and their families. Rehabilitation Counselors schedule visits with the children and their families/guardians based on the level of need and client preference and availability. Children who have chosen to participate in both onsite and offsite services participate in a minimum of three visits/services per month (2 onsite activities and 1 offsite visit or 1 onsite activity and 2 offsite visits). Individuals who only elect to receive onsite OR offsite services (not both) participate in at least two activities/visits per month. Additional visits are scheduled based on the child's needs and availability.

Group Therapy Sessions- Licensed Therapists conduct Group Psychotherapy sessions on a wide variety of topics. PRP participants may have the opportunity to attend Group Therapy sessions when clinically appropriate and available.
