  • 1. The Mental Health Recovery Center of Clinton & Warren Counties aka “The Center” Changing the Way Services to People with Severe Mental Disabilities (SMD) are Delivered in Our Communities
  • 2. 975 Fujitec Drive - Lebanon
  • 3. Who We Are: Clinton County
    • From 1984 until July 1, 2008, we had been known as the Mental Health Recovery Center of Clinton County
    • We were located in Wilmington (Clinton County) and served primarily the citizens of Clinton County
  • 4. Who We Are: Warren County
    • Starting July 1, 2008, we were asked by the Mental Health Recovery Service funding Board to assume responsibility for all services in Warren & Clinton Counties for people with severe mental disabilities (SMD)
    • To that end, the Fujitec facilities represent that expansion into Warren County
  • 5. Who We Are: Names are Changing
    • With the move to Warren County, our agency is now doing business as: The Mental Health Recovery Center of Clinton & Warren Counties
    • We are working with a local advisory group on an agency name change and longer term strategic planning process
    • For simplicity, the agency is mostly known as “The Center”
  • 6. MISSION :
    • The Center supports the communities of Clinton and Warren Counties in responding to behavioral health issues through prevention, intervention, treatment, rehabilitation and asset building services. Our mission is sharing hope and caring to achieve recovery from mental illness, alcoholism, and drug addiction. Our expectations for recovery include the acquisition of meaningful roles, sobriety, healthy relationships with friends and family, and a joyful life…
    • “ To help people function better so that they can become more successful and satisfied in their preferred living, learning, working, and/or social environments, with the least amount of ongoing assistance from agents of the mental health system...”
    • The focus of the mission is on community outcomes for the clients
    • A simple way to summarize the mission is that it is all about “Recovery” from mental illness.
    • It is not merely enough to speak about Recovery. Our expectation is for active implementation and application of the principles, philosophy, and technology of Recovery.
  • 8. VISION :
    • The Center will set the standard for excellence in delivering behavioral healthcare. We will:
    • Actively engage our talents to promote the common vision of recovery.
    • Anticipate and respond to the emerging needs of our community.
    • Offer services in the most clinically appropriate environment.
    • Demonstrate abilities exceeding local, state and national standards
  • 9. Values
    • The Center believes in a stated set of standards and values consistent with professional conduct in the delivered with compassion and respect:
    • Good stewardship. We believe that we are responsible to the Warren &Clinton County communities for providing quality services relevant to its needs.
    • A foundation of integrity. Our integrity is expressed through our commitment to be open and honest with our community, employees and our clients.
    • Investment in our employees. We promote continuous efforts to learn, improve and implement best practices to better address the needs of our customers.
    • Consumers of mental health services can identify realistic goals for themselves:
    • Choice is fundamental to recovery and is expected to be reflected in all clinical and rehabilitative activities.
    • Improving client functioning, and not simply maintaining people in the community, is a part of the agencies' mission:
    • A maintenance-only mission is yesterday’s mission and not part of the philosophy of our network of service.
    • Psychiatrically disabled persons’ skills and supports relate to community outcomes more strongly than do their symptoms:
    • Our system ensures that services provide for skill development and support development, and not just symptom relief.
    • The agency realizes that persons with psychiatric disabilities are limited not only by their major psychiatric symptoms but primarily by their persistent social and vocational deficits
    • Persons who are psychiatrically disabled need different services, at different times, and at different levels of intensity:
    • Persons with psychiatric disabilities do not need the same kinds of services.
    • The agency has developed a large range of service alternatives, packaged differently for different clients.
    • Agency personnel who work in programs serving persons with severe mental illness will be appropriately trained.
    • Most staff are untrained in the new technology of rehabilitative service delivery.
    • Our agency recognizes that skilled and dedicated personnel are our most important and costly resource.
    • As a result, we have implemented a year-round training plan to acquire and utilize state of the art psychiatric rehabilitation skills for personnel

    • The IRR Program foundation is based on Psychiatric Rehabilitation Technology and Recovery principles and philosophy (Boston University, Anthony, 1990)
    • There are 12 beds in the IRR Program, which are staffed by mental health professionals and technicians 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  10 beds are purchased by the Board for High Disability, Impairment, and Risk clients. 2 beds are purchased by the Board for non-medical Respite services and/or Emergency Housing.

  • 27. How is the Intensive Residential Rehabilitation Program Conducted?
    • The “ The Teaching as Treatment” approach as developed by Robert Carkhuff indicated “that training clients directly in the skills that they need to function in society would be a potent treatment method”

  • 30. Teaching the Lesson Plan
    • The lesson plan structure is a five-part format of a Review, an Overview, a Presentation, an Exercise, and a Summary, also known as ROPES (Cohen, Danley, and Nemec, l985; Carkhuff and Berenson, l976).
    • The Review involves a discussion and exploration of the client's experiences and understanding of the skill.
    • The Overview provides the information from the content outline, including what the skill is, why it is important, the steps of how the skill is performed, and a description of the general condition in which the skill is to be performed. In addition, the learner is given a correct image of the skill in an example.
    • The Presentation provides opportunities for the client to hear about, see, and practice each of the critical skill behaviors separately.
    • The Exercise is a chance for the learner to practice performing the critical skill behaviors together and to receive feedback on his/her performance.
    • The Summary reviews the learner's understanding of the newly learned skill and provides an orientation to the client's future use of the skill.

  • 35. How is Success Achieved through IRR Personnel?
    • Unit personnel are trained and coached on utilizing Psychiatric Rehabilitation Technology, i.e. Functional Assessment Evaluation & Skill Teaching.
    • Previous implementation of this approach in Role Recovery hospital and IRR sites in Florida and Alabama yielded a “halo” effect of a magnified staff commitment to the program by assuming greater responsibility for the accurate assessment and input towards the resident’s capabilities.
    • Unit staff training is then enhanced with the addition of interpersonal Readiness Development techniques designed to help personalize the resident’s accomplishments of learning the skills.
    • The result is continual staff/consumer focus of the requirements for success and continual staff/consumer focuses on the implications for Recovery as a result of skill acquisition.
  • 36. What is the Standard for Discharge in the Intensive Residential Rehabilitation Program Service?
    • One of more of the following conditions:
