Employment/Career Services

Bridgeway emphasizes vocational development as a crucial ingredient in the rehabilitation and recovery of people who have mental illness. Work is important, not only as a means of financial support, but as a self-esteem builder. Bridgeway uses the Supported Employment model of services which is recognized as the best practice to assist people who have mental health disabilities to get jobs.

Homeless Outreach

Bridgeway provides outreach, support, and case management services to adult Sussex County residents who are homeless, or are at risk of becoming homeless and who have a mental illness.

Integrated Case Management Services (ICMS)

ICMS is available to Sussex County residents who are discharged from a State or County psychiatric hospital or those with repeated admissions to Short Term Care Facilities or local Inpatient Units. ICMS provides community support to persons served, advocates for services and monitors service provision to maximize independent living.

ICMS provides support, advocacy and linkage to services in the transition from psychiatric hospital to successful community living.

Partial Care, Day Rehabilitation Program

Bridgeway’s Partial Care program is a day rehabilitation program providing psychiatric rehabilitation services in a freestanding community based setting. The program offers daily clinical, prevocational, educational, social, and support services as a bridge between emotional illness and productive active living. The program provides a range of recovery oriented services that address the holistic needs of the person in recovery including an opportunity to work on personal, social, vocational, wellness, and educational goals, with a focus on helping individuals to connect or reconnect with valued roles, to live as independently in the community and to prevent the use of more acute psychiatric services. The program operates on the tenet that all individuals when given support, skill training, opportunity, and encouragement can learn to live more independently and be more self-sufficient.

Supportive Housing & Enhanced Supportive Housing

Bridgeway’s Supportive Housing program assists people with mental illness who want to live independently. Supportive housing helps persons receiving services to gain access to affordable, permanent housing, link them to employment and educational programs and with community supports, and decrease their hospitalization rate. The strategy of matching affordable housing with home/community-based services is proving very effective. Addressing housing first results in positive outcomes for career development, community integration and re-hospitalization reduction. Improved outcomes in the future will be realized as people adjust to new living environments, become more focused on goals for the future and staff is able to devote time to work with them on their on rehabilitation goals.
