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.
