What is a Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Center (PRRC) Program
A PRRC program assists veterans with a serious mental illness; like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or chronic PTSD create a meaningful life within their own communities. Veterans in these programs have consistent access to recovery-oriented interventions and natural community-based supports – essential for living, working, learning, and contributing fully in the community. Some of these interventions include social skills training, community integration, goal setting, wellness planning, peer support, psycho education, help finding or keeping a job, and family education. These activities are organized within a group format, and are available as long as needed to support a Veteran’s recovery. Programs are available each weekday.
