SUMMARY

REQUEST FOR SERVICES NO. 7

WELLNESS CENTERS / CLIENT-RUN CENTERS

 


  

Description


RFS No. 7 consists of two distinct programs: Wellness Centers and Client-Run Centers.

 

Wellness Centers managed by professional staff, with at least 50% mental health consumer staffing, serve mental health clients and provide client-run services with adjunctive professional support, emphasizing activities geared toward wellness, recovery, healthy living and community integration. These services are geared primarily, although not exclusively, toward clients at higher stages of recovery. These Centers may be co-located in a mental health outpatient center, located in a multi-service center or free-standing in the community. Wellness Centers are designed to offer options to clients who no longer need the intensive services offered by the Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs or traditional adult outpatient services and who are ready to take increasing responsibility for their own wellness and recovery.

 

Client-Run Centers serve mental health clients and are 100% staffed and managed by mental health consumers and, potentially, family members, with a wide array of self-help groups, peer support services, educational/ social/recreational activities and linkage services. Although these Centers may be co-located in a mental health outpatient center, it is anticipated that most will be free-standing or located in a multi-service center. Client-Run Centers are designed to offer options to clients who no longer need the intensive services offered by the Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs or traditional adult outpatient services and who are ready to take increasing responsibility for their own wellness and recovery.

 

Target Population


The Wellness Centers and Client-Run Centers target their services toward:

• Adults with a serious mental illness, with primary emphasis on ages 26-59 who are in advanced stages of recovery.

• Mental health clients who, due to their level of recovery, are ready for and desire self-directed care.

• Emphasis will be placed on developing Centers for unserved and/or underserved ethnic minority populations and in geographic areas where client-run services are not proportionate to the need.
