The Bridge to Wellness Integrated Care program began as an extension of the psychiatric rehabilitation programming because many of the people we serve lack access to critical, life-saving primary care due to a variety of barriers. Our goal is to eliminate those barriers, reduce hospitalizations, and save lives.
We have two health professionals who will meet you at the location that is best for you. A licensed advanced practice nurse (APN), with more than 20 years of experience in community based primary care, and a bi-lingual licensed practical nurse (LPN) who specializes in wellness planning and activities.
RIST is an intensive residential support program designed to address the needs of individuals who may require intensive but varying degrees of residential support in the transition from hospital to community living. Bridgeway's RIST programs are comprehensive, flexible, mobile teams skilled in state of the art interventions that provides person centered recovery and wellness services to people re-entering the community from a psychiatric hospital. RIST, as a housing model, supports individuals' use of other community mental health treatment, employment and rehabilitation services, as appropriate.
