  • The PRRC is a recovery-oriented, outpatient day program for Veterans with serious mental illness.
  • The core elements of the PRRC include individualized assessment and recovery planning, skills-building groups, wellness workshops, community outings, and peer support. 
  • Groups and activities address symptom management, skill building, enhancement of cognitive and emotional strengths, social support, and community integration activities.

Who is Eligible?

Veterans eligible for PRRC are those who:

  • Have a primary Mental Health Provider at the Providence VA,
  • Have a diagnosis of a serious mental illness,
  • Have a desire to seek recovery, set personal goals, and work towards reaching those goals.
  • Veterans who do not meet full admission criteria will be admitted to the PRRC if there is Veteran interest and programming space. However, preference will always go to Veterans who meet the full admission criteria.

If you are interested in attending an orientation to learn more about the program please ask your Mental Health Provider to submit a referral.
