MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Vinfen Connecticut offers a wide range of innovative, person-centered services designed to help people with psychiatric conditions regain their health and live and work successfully in the community. We build on each person’s strengths to improve his or her abilities to succeed and recover.
We know that with the right support, recovery is possible. People with psychiatric conditions can and do attain emotional and physical wellness, achieve meaningful life goals, and are productive and valued members of their community.
Our focus on rehabilitation helps people with psychiatric conditions develop skills and acquire the resources they need to achieve recovery. We partner with each person to identify and set goals that are important to him or her, while providing encouragement and instilling hope in the process. We help people get back their lives by helping them make friends, strengthen family connections, find jobs or pursue education, develop new interests and skills, while learning to manage their conditions and gaining new perspectives. We also partner with families to give them the resources they need to advocate and support their family member effectively throughout their family member’s recovery.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Our residential services offer a continuum of short- and long-term residential options for people with psychiatric conditions.
Vinfen Connecticut’s Day Services give people an opportunity to develop skills, build confidence, and achieve their goals through education and employment. We partner with people to help them build the foundation they need to live independent, successful lives in the community.
Employment Services give individuals the support they need to sharpen their work-related skills through community-based vocational training and employment opportunities offered through the Vinfen Connecticut Vocational Training Center (VVTC).
