Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) for Children & Adolescents
Regeneration is licensed by the Baltimore Health Administration (BHA) as a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP). The purpose of this program is to support consumers with mental health challenges in becoming healthy and productive individuals in their community. PRP are adjunct services in collaboration with the child or adolescent’s mental health therapy services. The mental health provider assesses the individual’s need for additional services and makes a referral for the consumer to receive PRP services.
We provide comprehensive, individualized, and need-based rehabilitation services to promote independence and improve the quality of life for children and adolescents with severe and persistent mental illness. We provide education and support that is guided by a range of assessments and individualized rehabilitation plans. In addition, our program offers specialized intervention services tailored to the needs of the consumers. Consumers and their guardians are encouraged to take a leadership role in the development of goals, program activities, and services.
Regeneration provides On-Site and Off-Site Services to consumers. We recognize the necessity of implementing treatment in multiple settings to increase the probability of long term success. Specific rehabilitation goals are established, which target identified needs based on information from the referring mental health professional, a comprehensive assessment, and meetings with the child and his/her family.
PRP staff routinely evaluate each child’s progress and provide updates to the referring Mental Health professional, the family or guardian, and other mental health professionals working with the child.
Psychiatric Rehabilitation Assessment upon admission to the program, trained rehabilitation staff meet face to face with the child and his/her family, guardian, or care-taker to complete a functional skills assessment, designed to identify each child’s strengths, skills, and psychiatric rehabilitation needs.
