CMHA branches across Manitoba offer a variety of services. Our services are informed by CMHA’s Framework for Support and the recovery model as a basis for working with people with mental health illnesses and challenges.
This service assists people with a mental illness to choose, get and keep valued roles in the community such as an employee, tenant, or student. Working through a step-by-step process with a Rehabilitation Worker, people learn skills and make the changes necessary to be successful and satisfied.
Rehabilitation is more than just finding a job, home, school, or a place to meet people. It is helping people to recover or discover meaningful roles in life. Rehabilitation staff work with individuals to select a place to live, learn, work or socialize from the broadest range of possibilities based on personal preferences, interests and skills. The person has an opportunity to develop wellness plans, gain self-awareness and insight about recovery, learn how to problem solve an issue before a crisis develops, and respond to and manage stress. The development of the right skills, resources and supports are important once the person begins their new role so they can achieve success in it. How can I enroll in the Rehabilitation and Recovery Service at CMHA Thompson?
Any person interested in the Rehabilitation and Recovery Service would need to be referred by a Community Mental Health Worker from the Northern Regional Health Authority. Self-referrals are also accepted.
