JCI's psychosocial rehabilitation program, formerly known as the Unity House, serves persons with chronic mental illness. This clubhouse model assists with recovery and stabilization and helps adults with psychiatric disabilities develop, enhance and/or retain psychiatric stability and social and independent living competencies and increase individual functioning. Services maximize the client's ability to live as independently as possible, manage their illness and their lives with as little professional intervention as possible, and participate in community opportunities related to functional, social, educational, and vocational goals. Members are directed to focus on strengths and abilities rather than on "illness ." Also, interdependence and self-determination. Members work closely with staff to manage the day-to-day operations of the program.
