What happens when a person with a mental illness calls Green Door for help?
Green Door can usually set up an intake appointment within a week.  Intake staff and the prospective client meet to assess his or her needs and goals and, working together, develop an initial Recovery Plan.  The next step is a meeting with one of Green Door’s psychiatrists who will develop a plan of psychiatric care that might include medication to help alleviate the symptoms of mental illness.

A new client is then linked with a Community Support Worker whose job is to help a client achieve the goals established in the Recovery Plan that might include basic independent living skills such as money management, meal planning and cooking.  It may involve helping a client find housing, a job or medical care.  It could include assistance with a client’s educational or employment goals or facilitating enrollment in other services such as Green Door’s Next Step Program.  The actual assistance provided by a Community Support Worker is highly individualized and targeted to helping the client achieve their goals and maximize their independence.
