Mental Health Services
The Ark is a trusted partner for those experiencing mental health challenges to come for community and support. Whether chronic or newly onset, The Ark has the resources to help.
The Ark’s Intensive Day Program (IDP) enhances and enriches the lives of Jewish adults living with mental health challenges. We support clients in their striving towards wellness and achieving optimal levels of self-reliance.
The IDP program offers a full menu of daily therapeutic, creative arts and activity-based groups, in an atmosphere that fosters positive social interactions and celebrates Jewish values and rituals.
Participants have access to individual case management appointments to work on issues ranging from access to benefits, coordination with other health care providers, housing, budgeting and employment. Additionally, staff offers individual therapy appointments to work on relationship issues, identifying and managing symptoms, coping with stress and crisis and working towards goals. For many of its participants, the Intensive Day Program is a community, a family, a place to belong and feel valued.
The Ark is fortunate to have a psychiatrist on staff for adults 18+. Other mental health professionals are also available.
