The Challenge Center is a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Service (PRS) that serves adults 18 years and older, who have been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and voluntarily wishes to receive the services.
We are committed to the concepts of recovery and resiliency. We focus on the five key recovery concepts as founded by Mary Ellen Copeland: Hope, Personal Responsibility, Education, Self-advocacy, and Support.
The Challenge Center offers a variety of classes teaching you skills and connecting individuals to resources that focus on the areas of living, learning, working, and socializing, to assist individuals in living a more fulfilled and satisfying life. This service is about staff members walking beside program participants, as they work at their own pace in their recovery journey. Persons in recovery are in the driver seat and staff members are the pit crew helping individuals along the way. As individuals grow in their recovery, Challenge Center staff encourage them to find their own voice in making choices, as well as, taking responsibility for their recovery.
The Challenge Center inspires hope and empowerment to take back life, in spite of the mental health diagnosis and encourages individuals to continue choosing their path and writing their own story.
