Overview

The Bridge is a human service agency that provides counseling services to people facing challenges. This program provides therapeutic services for young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 with mental health challenges.  The program is designed to help the young adults referred by the Department of Mental Health develop independent living skills, healthy relationships, personal independence, and the skills to manage their illness. This program offers Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Peer Support and utilizes Supported Employment and Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) as the treatment models. The program also utilizes the Recovery Oriented Cognitive Therapy Model (CT-R) to help staff support the young adults living in this program develop meaningful life goals that align with their treatment. The CT-R model uses interventions such as engagement, guided discovery, and building meaningful activities and relationships to help the individual define what recovery means to them and increase community integration to prepare for independent living.
