Community Support Services
Thresholds provides a comprehensive array of clinical services for people with severe mental illness. Our members have access to case management, psychiatric care, group and individual therapy, as well as the evidence-based practices of Wellness Management and Recovery and Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment. Members have access to support networks that include social workers, case managers, psychiatrists, therapists, and nurse practitioners, creating a holistic approach to recovery not available with most community mental health providers. In addition, Thresholds – in partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing — has pioneered a program addressing physical health care needs of our members through the implementation of integrated healthcare clinics.
Thresholds offers clinical, housing, outreach, education, and employment services to numerous special populations, including veterans, the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, those re-entering society after incarceration, and new mothers and youth. In addition, Thresholds offers peer-to-peer services, teaming professionals who are in recovery themselves with other Thresholds members.
Centers for Recovery
Thresholds’ Centers for Recovery are designed to help people who are managing mental illness succeed in their journey of recovery. Going alone is daunting, frustrating, and too often unsuccessful. Our services are tailored to meet the individual’s needs and desires. The road to recovery is unique to each person, and Thresholds’ staff collaborates with each person to develop personal goals and a plan to reach them.
Based on the concept of a “clubhouse,” where people come to socialize in a relaxed, positive setting, our Centers are informal safe havens for people to find common ground and develop helpful, meaningful relationships. Of equal importance, Thresholds’ Centers offer a variety of skill-building services to assist those in recovery in taking control of their lives.
