Community Based Rehabilitation Services are home or community-based services available to adults who are recovering from a Severe and Persistent Mental Illness and children with Emotion Regulation disorders. Services aim to promote recovery/resilience, facilitate community integration and provide the necessary support to empower individuals in improving their quality of life.
Community Based Rehabilitation Services utilize credentialed CBRS workers to help individuals develop skills needed to increase their capacity to succeed in their home, employment, school or social environments. Services target skills that have been lost due to mental health conditions. Community Based Rehabilitation Services vary in intensity, frequency, and duration. They are customized to support clients in managing functional difficulties. TSWSC CBRS/CM program has over the years helped dozens of people from around the world establish new lives in the Treasure Valley. At this time, we have several CBRS workers on our team who have experienced the refugee/immigration process first-hand. Based on the principles of trauma-informed practice and the provision of equitable services, our program aims to:
- Develop or improve skills that enhance facilitate recovery, quality of life, and strengthen resilience.
- Provide culturally relevant services by reinterpreting conventional practices to better suit the needs of our refugee clients who are often resilient trauma survivors.
- Counselor-CBRSworker collaboration is fundamental in this treatment model.
