People's Place - Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services

What is People's Place?

People's Place is a recovery-based psychosocial rehabilitation program. Programs are provided to adults for two or more hours per day in a non-residential setting.


How does People's Place work?

Services are planned individually using a person-centered approach which engages the individual, family, and provider team. Recovery goals and objectives are developed based on individual preferences, strengths and potentials.


Individuals must demonstrate a clinical necessity for the service arising from a condition due to mental, behavioral, or emotional illness that results in significant functional impairments in major life activities. As determined by a licensed mental health professional, individuals must meet at least two of the following on a continuing or intermittent basis:

  • Have difficulty in establishing or maintaining normal interpersonal relationships to such a degree that they are at risk of hospitalization or homelessness because of conflicts with family or community.
  • Require help in basic living skills, such as maintaining personal hygiene, preparing food and maintaining adequate nutrition, or managing finances to such a degree that health or safety is jeopardized.
  • Exhibit such inappropriate behavior that repeated interventions by the mental health, social services, or judicial system are necessary.
  • Exhibit difficulty in cognitive ability such that they are unable to recognize personal danger or significantly inappropriate social behavior.

Who may benefit from these services?

The program serves individuals who have serious mental illness and/or mental illness with other co-occurring disorders such as substance use disorder.
