Psychiatric rehabilitation service at WIN Family Services is a therapeutic wellness service developed to focus on serving the needs of individuals with mental health disabilities. As a ‘WIN Team’ member I utilize strength-based and solution-focused training, counseling, and mentoring services designed to produce healing and restoration for individuals and families within their community.
I work directly with individual where he or she is most comfortable: in the home or a familiar place in the community, assisting the individual with removing barriers to healthy functioning. My role is to support the psycho-therapeutic aspect of an individual’s mental health treatment by unpacking what happens internally, mentally, and emotionally in clients.
My intervention has helped my clients to be enlightened on who they are, what their strengths and needs are, and has helped bring resolve to psychiatric symptoms. I have helped youth, adults and their families identify and utilize their inherent strengths, skills, and talents. Individuals are able to successfully live and work in the community and enjoy active, healthy lives
On a typical day I helped my client to identify strategies related to independent living goals by introducing him to money management skill. I assisted him to open a bank account and supported him through the process; discussing ways to ensure not to incur bank fees, and showing him how to record each transaction for close monitoring of flow of fund. At the end of the day my client felt excited for what he learned through my effort.
