Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Center (PRRC)

What is Recovery?

More than eight million Americans and their families live with a serious mental illness. To them Recovery  means living life to its fullest, having relationships, being part of a community, holding down a job, and/or going to school. Recovery is living a satisfying life, with or without the limitations of a psychiatric disability.  Recovery is not a destination, but an ongoing journey.

What can PRRC offer me?

• Education Groups: Learn the skills to manage your illness, cope with stress, enjoy hobbies and develop meaningful relationships with others.
• Community Integration Experiences: Overcome the barriers that prevent you from taking an active role in your community.
• Creative Arts Groups: Get involved in the arts, learn new skills, and explore community resources.
• Individual Recovery Planning: Work with a Recovery Coach to develop an Individual Recovery Plan.
• Peer Support Services: Talk with someone who has been in your shoes.
• Psychiatric Services: Work with a psychiatrist to manage  your mental health symptoms.

What PRRC Veterans say
 “Before PRRC I didn’t have hope, but now I have hope my life can improve.”
