Bridgeway’s Partial Care program is a day rehabilitation program providing psychiatric rehabilitation services in a freestanding community based setting. The program offers daily clinical, prevocational, educational, social, and support services as a bridge between emotional illness and productive active living. The program provides a range of recovery oriented services that address the holistic needs of the person in recovery including an opportunity to work on personal, social, vocational, wellness, and educational goals, with a focus on helping individuals to connect or reconnect with valued roles, to live as independently in the community and to prevent the use of more acute psychiatric services. The program operates on the tenet that all individuals when given support, skill training, opportunity, and encouragement can learn to live more independently and be more self-sufficient.
