Creating Successful Outcomes

How Does IPR Help?

Intensive Psychiatric Rehabilitation assists adults with mental illness who want more from their life with a program designed to last up to 12–24 months and includes group skill building and one-on-one sessions on a weekly basis. Vera French facilitators will help clients reach a recovery phase in their life where they are able to take their work with them upon completion of the program.

Components of Intensive Psychiatric Rehabilitation:

Readiness Assessment

Evaluates the client on need for change, commitment to change, personal closeness, self-awareness, and environmental awareness.

Readiness Development

Helps the client in any area of need found in the readiness assessment. This increases the client’s interest, hope, motivation, and willingness to engage in the recovery process with the facilitator.

Goal Setting

Assists the client with making informed choices regarding personal criteria (client’s values), evaluating alternative environments, and choosing an overall rehabilitation goal

Goal Achievement

Determines & plans use of Critical Skills and Supports in order for the client to be successful and satisfied in the new role of their choosing.

Goal Keeping

Assists in maintaining the goal environment to prevent relapse of mental health symptoms and loss of their new role. Clients that complete the IPR process will get to keep a copy of all the work that they have completed.
