Quality of Life

Mentally ill and co-occurring substance abuse adults; within identified Licensed Board and Care Homes and supported housing facilities, staffing provided by persons with lived mental health experience.  The Quality of Life is a pioneering program that enables us to extend our Peer Support services to three of the largest Board and Care homes as well as Villa Calleguas permanent support housing in Ventura County.  This project increases the quality of life of the residents through individual relationships with peer staff, group activities within the home, projects involving residents to beautify the home and activities in the community that promote community integrations. Quality of Life creates an environment in these homes that promote recovery and movement toward independent living when possible.

The Quality of Life program is based on the evidence based practice developed by Mary Ellen Copeland.  She is the author and designer of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), a self-help mental health recovery program encouraging people to develop individualized WRAP to assist them through the recovery process.
