An Evanston mental health facility has launched a program designed to help young adults suffering or recovering from mental illness develop the necessary skills that will allow them to live and thrive safely in an independent setting.
The Core Competence Home Health Service offered by Yellowbrick, a facility that works exclusively with young adults, will service those aged 17 to 30 living within 10 miles of the Yellowbrick facility.
Occupational therapists, dietitians, career and educational specialists will work with young adults attempting to live on their own on a college campus or apartment to help them develop life skills in four key areas, including health and wellness, independent living skills, cognitive skills and career and education, said Dana Bender, director of the new program.
Dr. Jesse Viner has been nominated and selected to receive the Excellence in Patient Services Award given by the Illinois Psychiatric Society. He has been selected by a group of his IPS peers to receive the award.
