Emerging Adults Services: Emerging Adults Services is designed to assist young adults successfully make the transition to adulthood. This strengths-based program provides opportunities for each young adult to pursue their individual goals in the areas of education, vocation, living situation, and community living skills. Eligible participants are young adults (ages 18-24) who have a mental illness or serious emotional disturbance with a history of foster care placement or psychiatric hospitalizations, or who are experiencing homelessness. Homeless Outreach: Park Center’s Homeless Outreach Services consists of two components – Street Outreach and SOAR (SSI/SSDI, Outreach, Access and Recovery). Park Center’s SOAR Coordinators work with people residing in Nashville (Davidson County) who are experiencing homelessness and have a severe and persistent mental illness where symptoms limit the individual’s ability to maintain substantial gainful activity through employment (as determined by the Social Security Administration). Psychiatric Rehabilitation & Co-Occurring Services: Park Center provides a comprehensive day program for people with severe and persistent mental illness. Park Center believes in responding to individuals' strengths and abilities, rather than their illnesses. Through employment training, educational groups and peer support, Park Center provides a compassionate and safe atmosphere to maximize opportunities for recovery.
