Vision of Wellness Program

MHS’ mission is to provide high quality, outcome-based therapeutic services, and skills training in a supportive and validating environment to enhance the client's quality of life. For more than 15 years, the team at MHS has served the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metro area, helping thousands to find their way to better outcomes.

Whether you're struggling with day-to-day tasks or you need help dealing with a crisis, MHS can help you find your way. One example of how MHS lives out its mission is the Vision of Wellness Program, which serves people with psychotic disorders, such as Schizophrenia.


What Is Schizophrenia and How Is It Treated?

Schizophrenia is a form of mental illness that may include hallucinations, disorganized thoughts, and delusions, among other symptoms. The disorder initially appears most often between the ages of 16 and 30. Schizophrenia can interfere with family relationships, occupational success, and severe cases can result in catatonia. The typical treatment involves medication, psychotherapy, and support systems in the client's life.

While Schizophrenia treatment requires lifelong commitment and maintenance, many clients do very well once identifying individualized treatment goals and interventions. Most clients get better over time, rather than worse, with the majority showing significant improvement five years out from diagnosis. While there is no Schizophrenia cure, programs such as Vision of Wellness can help clients reach their individualized goals, both short and long term.


How Does MHS Help Clients With Schizophrenia Symptoms?

The Vision of Wellness Program is a program that meets twice weekly and is appropriate for individuals diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, and other psychotic disorders. It is covered by most major insurance carriers.

Clients take part in the Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) approach to reach individualized recovery goals. IMR is an evidence-based method of helping clients develop coping skills to deal with mental health challenges. Here are a few of the areas IMR addresses:

  • Self-care
  • Social skills
  • Symptom management
  • Relapse prevention
  • Goal-setting
  • Establishing and maintaining strength and stability
