DAY TREATMENT PROGRAMS (ADULT SKILLS DEVELOPMENT)
One of the most pervasive and debilitating characteristics of serious mental illness is social isolation. This is often due to limited vocational and educational opportunities and restricted social interaction. Southwest Behavioral Health Center maintains two programs to help clients and community members recover from these limiting aspects of mental illness: Elev8, located in St George, and Oasis House located in Cedar City.
Both provide outreach services to Kane, Garfield and Beaver Counties. These day programs provides men and women with a supportive network that includes educational opportunities, vocational and life skills training, employment opportunities, and assistance with housing resources. The environment is designed to foster friendships and maintain a sense of belonging and wellbeing. Members take an active role in the governance and operation of the program. These communities are built upon the belief that every member can sufficiently recover from the effects of mental illness to lead a personally satisfying life. Members are dedicated to one another’s success – no matter how long it takes or how difficult it is. Each program is organized around a belief in the potential for productive contributions from everyone, in spite of the severe effects of mental illness.
Elev8 and Oasis House are open during general business hours Monday through Friday. Each program is enhanced by weekend, evening and holiday social activities. For more information please contact the program nearest you.
