Recovery from Mental Illness is Focus of New Curriculum at SUCCESS

Recovery from Mental Illness is Focus of New Curriculum at SUCCESS

The ability of people having mental illness to recover from the effects of the illness has been studied by researchers for over 30 years. The results of many different studies all seem to indicate that recovery is not only possible but happens more frequently than it doesn't: approximately two out of every three get better.

In addition, the research has identified certain factors which tend to increase the chances that any given person will recover. Newer and better medications are certainly important, but one factor that people have control over is their willingness and ability to learn about their illness and to manage their symptoms. This orientation to recovery has become the guiding principle of the New York State Office of Mental Health.

The Skills Unlimited SUCCESS program has revised its curriculm to integrate the results of these studies into its program.  SUCCESS offers assessment, treatment, and a variety of individualized services to help individuals with mental illness regain their lives.  Our core curriculum emphasizes the importance of learning about mental illness, wellness self-management, and development of goals that can eventually lead to a productive and fulfilling life.  

All program participants are assigned a counselor who can provide assistance in the selection of a schedule of classes appropriate to the individual's areas of interest.  Clinic services are available on site but participants may choose to remain with their present doctor and can still attend our program.

In most cases, the cost of the program is paid for by participants health insurance.  Assistance with transportation is also provided.  Tours of our program are encouraged for all prospective applicants;  please call (631) 567-1626 for more information or to arrange a tour.
