Quality of Life Peer Support
Quality of Life provides Peer Support Services in 5 board and care facilities and 2 independent living facilities. All sites provide housing for individuals with serious mental health challenges. QOL program improves the quality of life of the residents through individual relationships with peer support staff, recovery groups, group activities within the home, and activities in the community that promote community integrations. Quality of Life creates an environment in these homes that promotes recovery and movement toward independent living when possible.
The Quality of Life program is the evidence based practice developed by Mary Ellen Copeland. She is the author and designer of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), a self-help mental health recovery program encouraging people to develop individualized WRAP to assist them through the recovery process. www.turningpointfoundation.org
The R.I.S.E. program is for clients who suffer from or appear to suffer from a mental illness of some kind and who are either unable or unwilling to access further treatment like recently released psychiatric hospital patients, homeless clients who may refuse treatment or are unable to access treatment or whose symptoms are so severe that they cannot leave the house or get to a VCBH clinic for assessment.
