Rehabilitative Social Club Program provides socialization opportunities for adults residing in Orange County with mental illness. Club members are able to make meaningful connections by taking part in planned community trips. The objective of these clubs is to assist individuals living with a mental illness to develop or reestablish a sense of self-esteem and group affiliation, and to promote their recovery from mental illness and their reintegration into a meaningful role in community life. Members receive peer support and establish friendships. Members explore their creativity through art, cooking, music, games and more. Life skills building, support groups, weekly wellness workshops, advocacy and referral services are provided.
Groups are held Mondays from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., Mondays from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Transportation is available for program participants living in the Middletown area.
