Building Healthy Communities

As a community mental health center Pawnee is the ONLY provider of community services for adults with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness  (SPMI) and children with Serious Emotional Disturbances (SED).

Adult Rehabilitation Services (ARS) provides support to adults with SPMI for the purpose of helping them manage the symptoms they experience, which in turn allows them to be active and contributing members of their community.  Services provided by Pawnee staff include:

  1. Benefits Management – This service assists clients with identifying and applying for benefits for which they qualify.

  2. Attendant Care – Adults with SPMI receive assistance with tasks that may hinder their ability to live independently. This assistance may include job skills, healthy eating, physical health maintenance and other independent living skills.

  3. Group Sessions – Group sessions provide valuable social interaction and help clients to practice skills they have learned to manage the symptoms they experience.  In group sessions the clients also have an opportunity to learn and practice their cooking skills.
