Strong Ties Community Support

Strong Ties is an off-campus community-based outpatient program for the serious and persistently mentally ill patients focusing on schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses. The program utilizes the McFarland Model and operates from an illness management and recovery philosophy. Treatment strongly emphasizes helping each client set and pursue personal goals and to implement action strategies in their everyday lives. Social Workers teach recovery strategies, provide psychoeducation about mental illness and how to build social supports, focus on reducing relapses and coping with stress, problems and symptoms, as well as getting one's needs met in the system. This is accomplished through a combination of group and individual treatments, as well as medication and case management. Social Workers function as primary therapists and assume the role of coordinating a comprehensive plan for the patient and ensuring treatment goals and objectives are met.

For further assistance, please contact Strong Ties at (585) 279-4900.
