Montgomery Station is a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program. We work with adults with serious mental illnesses in a variety of settings to reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives. Montgomery Station’s philosophy is based on the Mental Health Recovery Model. The Recovery Model emphasizes that people can make progress and positive changes in their lives, despite having mental illness. It emphasizes hope and the fact that, although people don’t have full control over their symptoms, they can have full control over their lives. Montgomery Station and the Recovery Model take a holistic view that focuses on the person, not just the symptoms. This is why it is important to work closely with the individual, his or her family and friends, and his or her doctors and therapists.
Our Programs and Services Include:
Day Program and Outreach Program
The day program and outreach staff works with our clients both at home and at our day program on their rehabilitation goals. The day program provides structured daily activity for individuals. Various group activities and educational opportunities are held throughout the day. Outreach services are provided in the client’s own home or other community locations by staff on a 1:1 basis.
The residential program provides a place to live and more intensive individualized rehabilitation services then are provided in outreach. Residents in the program may be involved in the vocational program and/or the day program as well, depending on their needs and desires. All residents are required to participate in their rehabilitation plan and to be involved in some kind of structured daily activity.
Supportive Living Program
Supportive Employment Program (SEP)
The vocational program helps clients obtain and keep competitive permanent employment. Anyone with a serious mental illness is eligible for this service. If an individual says that he or she wants to work, an Employment Specialist will begin Job Development with him or her. There are no requirements for individuals to be “work-ready” or have an employment history.
