The Choices FSP is dedicated to empowering individuals to be successfully independent within their own community and to provide hope and opportunity that allows for change toward an improved quality of life in accordance with each individual's beliefs and mental health recovery goals. Choices serves a population of people who are 18 years of age and older, who are experiencing mental illness and are homeless or at a high risk of homelessness. Choices provides a variety of services to its participants, including; intensive case management, community integration, counseling, mental health education/self management, crisis intervention, vocational and educational assistance, housing services, on-site nurse, medication support services, and 24/7 on call support.
Choices stands for Change, Hope, Opportunity, Independence, Community, Empowerment, and Success. Staff strive to facilitate the ultimate success of participants in the program through all of the services rendered via the program. By giving participants many of the services which they have never received before, success in becoming a productive member of the community becomes a feasible possibility. Staff take a personal interest in the participants and as they succeed, we succeed. The psychosocial rehabilitation, wellness, and recovery model which builds upon client strengths and encourages client choices, serves as a foundation for the program. Through use of this model, we can improve the quality of life for the participants in the program who are affected by mental illness.
By exploring data related to participants who have successfully progressed through the program, we can establish some trends relating to stabilization and recovery. If we have a model of things we can expect to see along this path (i.e. relapses, medication management, housing issues, schooling, employment, etc.), we can be more prepared for the variety of individuals who participate in the program. By presenting the information to them, they can see the potential which they are capable of achieving. By creating a goal to work toward, participants will hopefully be more inclined to put in the effort required to achieve the goal.
