Description:

CARES (Correctional Advocacy & Re-entry Support) is a specialized team providing Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment, Psychotherapy, Pharmacologic Management, and Supportive Services for adult mental health consumers returning from incarceration. The team seeks to reduce recidivism, hospitalization and use of crisis/emergency services, move re-entrants toward recovery and assist re-entrants with housing and effective life coping skills for successful community re-integration.

 

This group of four (4) service areas, Prison Outreach, Forensic Liaison, Suburban Municipal Court Liaison and Mental Health and Developmentally Disabled (MH/DD) Unit, treats and supports individuals re-entering the community. Clients are provided mental health treatment and are linked to supports that focus on recovery and reduce their involvement in criminal activity. The level of intensity distinguishes these services from others. Rehabilitation and environmental support activities reduce the symptoms of psychiatric illness, build resilience and improve their quality of life and integration into the community.
