Hope and Recovery
We believe that people CAN recover from even the most serious and persistent mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, major depression, or bipolar disorder. Studies suggest that individuals recovery or significantly improve when provided the appropriate treatments and supports systems. Over the past 30 years, an unwavering effort to use more effective and lower cost alternatives to long-term institutionalization led to psychiatric rehabilitation services.
Psychiatric rehabilitation promotes recovery, full community integration and improved quality of life for persons who have been diagnosed with any mental health condition that seriously impairs their ability to lead meaningful lives. Psychiatric rehabilitation services are collaborative, person-directed and individualized. These services are an essential element of the health care and human services spectrum, and should be evidence-based. They focus on helping individuals develop skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful and satisfied in the living, working, learning, and social environments of their choice.
Litoi, The Man in the Maze
The story of Litoi is also the story of every human being, traveling life as through a maze, taking many turns while growing stronger and wiser as life continues until the end at the dark center of the maze. Tracing the light path with your finger you will find one more turn at the end, away from the center. Here we can look back on the trail and find acceptance of the last step.
