A local mental health agency has been selected as one of 10 groups in the country to launch a new pilot program that would bring a more “patient-oriented” approach to the treatment of schizophrenia.
On Monday, Hill Country Community MHMR Center announced that it was selected along with nine other community behavioral health organizations across the nation to engage in an eight-month pilot program to improve the daily functioning of people living with schizophrenia.
“The approach is really centered on helping patients determine their goals, desires and dreams and developing an action plan for them to make those aspirations a reality,” said Linda Werlein, CEO of the center.
