The Independent Living Skills Program (ILS) is a collaborative program, providing services to individuals in conjunction with their mental health care provider.  The emphasis is on building foundational skills that will bring greater independence and enhance the recovery journey.

The goal is for individuals to learn how to manage their behavioral health during daily activities, and in turn, be able to live more independently.
