The Supported Living Center – which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – is licensed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and is a facility providing housing and residential treatment for 16 men and women with staff supervision and psychiatric rehabilitation services. Most individuals begin their stay at this level. At the onset of admission, a thorough baseline assessment is performed and an individualized treatment plan is created with the resident. At this level, our staff educates residents about their mental illness and the importance of medications management. They also work with residents to develop and refine the daily living and coping skills needed to manage their illness. Each resident must participate in the program where individual skills training, counseling, classroom education, and community activities are offered each week.
When they are prepared, residents will move from the Supportive Living Center to Gateway’s Supported Living Apartments, which offers on-campus apartment living. Our staff works with each person to help them live as they would out in the community. Residents continue to receive comprehensive mental health services and are challenged to become more responsible and self-sufficient. Residents focus on developing socialization, educational and vocational skills for job placement, and management of their mental illness with continued medication education.
In the third and final level of Gateway’s program, residents transition to independent living in the community. On a weekly basis, they receive staff support to ensure they are successfully managing their mental illness, their responsibilities, and their independence. They are also invited to continue participating in the many social events and psychosocial rehabilitation programs available on our campus.
The Chesterfield Campus is able to offer wrap around services to our clients right on campus with case management and mental health clinicians, direct support staff, a psychiatrist, individual therapists, a nurse practitioner, a dietician, an occupational therapist, and peer support.
