GUILD ST. PAUL AREA

When you have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or another type of serious mental illness, getting the right kind of help at the right time is an important key to recovery.

Guild St. Paul Area assures the full array of psychiatric rehabilitation services essential to support recovery. Multi-disciplinary teams, including case managers, nurses, employment specialists and psychiatry, use evidence-based practice to help individuals:

  • have safe, affordable housing in which to live;
  • maintain their optimum physical and mental health;
  • develop and enhance skills to meet the challenges of daily living;
  • pursue life goals;
  • find suitable employment or pursue education;
  • have recreation and socializing opportunities;
  • develop personal support systems;
  • have a sense of satisfaction with the quality of life, security and hope for the future.

Services are provided in vivo - in the community where needed, rather than in an office. Each individual can get "hands-on" help when needed, whether daily or occasionally. As an individual’s needs change, services increase or decrease. Nearly everyone served lives in their own home in the community. Flexible, strengths-based services help prevent the loss of housing and employment. Community alternatives to hospitalization are used whenever possible. Guild St. Paul Area includes the Jade, Opal, Emerald, Jasper, and Copper Teams.

Features include:
  • Targeting services to help those who have the greatest difficulty with basic daily activities and who have persistent symptoms that are not easily relieved.
  • Taking a collaborative, strengths-based approach to foster a spirit of hopefulness and belief in each person’s ability to grow and change.
  • Careful tailoring of services from person to person as each individual has unique preferences, strengths and challenges related to their situation.
  • Giving high priority to responsive and reliable coordination of services and case management.
