Self-Awareness and Personal Empowerment Can Create Positive Changes
At ClearView Communities, we firmly believe recovery from mental illness IS possible. That means developing an understanding of one’s own illness and developing self-awareness of behaviors, which are both essential to making changes. There is a process by which people with psychiatric disabilities rebuild and further develop their important personal, social, environmental and spiritual connections, and learn to confront the effects of stigma. ClearView Communities knows that each resident brings valuable contributions and internal resources to the recovery process. We seek to assist individuals in utilizing these resources through a resident-centered approach.
Improving Quality of Life Through Meaningful Roles
Our residents have the capacity to make positive changes in their lives. They have the desire and drive to move forward and grow to reach their potential. And they have the ability to improve the quality of their lives. Our program works to identify individual strengths and challenges to assist residents in identifying and overcoming the barriers they may encounter. Every individual has the ability to achieve a meaningful, productive role in his or her community including work, volunteering, and education. ClearView believes it’s important to challenge people to continue moving forward in their recovery. We help people rekindle and build the hope of being a productive member of society.
Nurturing Good Health
It’s our belief that treating the whole person — body, mind, and spirit — is a vital part of overcoming mental illness. ClearView residents have the option of participating in a variety of healthful options designed to promote well-being. We collaborate with nearby facilities and community organizations for physical fitness, recreational and social activities such as:
Yoga and exercise classes
Hiking, biking, climbing and other outdoor activities
Organized social events
Community dinners within the residences
Flexible, Individual Treatment Plans
We recognize that mental illness is sometimes cyclical, and people may be at different stages of recovery. Our programming is flexible and completely personalized based upon our assessment of the individual resident. We believe it’s essential to look at the whole person including mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
ClearView believes that recovery depends on these life areas:
- Regular activity or employment
- Aesthetically pleasing home environment
- Integrated treatment
- Management of one’s health
- Positive relationships
- Integration into the community
- Optimizing cognitive performance
We strive to offer the best in each life aspect through our program.
