Psychosocial Rehabilitation Centers (PSRCs)

Located in both Jefferson City and Columbia, the PSR Centers are day programs that provide consumers with an opportunity to learn or relearn skills, form friendships and have a place to be respected and accepted. Scheduled activities are varied in response to participants' needs and interests.

The Centers are operated under a modified clubhouse model where consumers assist in the overall operation of the program including but not limited to: assisting staff with program planning; leading groups; planning, preparing, serving and cleaning up lunch; writing and assembling newsletters; cleaning group areas; and stocking supplies.

What We Do

We're a group where people like you help us make our mental health services better. We believe the best way to improve these services is to listen to the people who use them. That's you!

Who's In the Team

Our team has lots of different people who use our services. We make sure everyone's ideas are heard. This helps us understand what everyone needs and makes our services better for everyone.

Our Leaders

The team is led by the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Staff (PSR staff) who know a lot about mental health care. They help us turn your ideas and suggestions into real plans that make things better for everyone who uses our services.

Meetings and Sharing Ideas

We get together four times a year to talk about how to make our services better. At these meetings, the PSR staff tell us about new things happening at our agency. Then, everyone can share their thoughts, ask questions, or talk about what worries them. Your ideas are really important, and this is where they can make a difference.

Your Impact

Your ideas don't just get heard—they make things happen! After each meeting, our PSR staff pass the feedback on to those higher up in our agency, who use your advice to make decisions and changes that help everyone.

Joining the Team

Do you want to help make our services better? If you use our services, you can join our team! Just talk to one of our team leaders if you're interested.
