Centra Wellness Network provides wellness-oriented services and support for individuals with mental illness and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities, and for children with emotional disturbances. Our purpose is to help qualified individuals of all ages in their pursuit of happiness by removing any barriers towards recovery and full community inclusion in order to achieve good mental health and to fully participate in community life, utilizing all its resources in line with their individual needs, wants, and desires. No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available here.
Once a person is determined to qualify for Centra Wellness supports and services, the process of getting to the services that meet the purpose described above is called Person Centered Planning (PCP). With the assistance of a Centra Wellness Supports Coordinator, the person wanting services actively participates in the process with his/her chosen spokesperson, if the person so wishes, to ensure that his/her needs, wants and desires are addressed in an individual plan of service. Once established, this plan can be amended at any time as the person progresses with meeting his/her goals.
The supports and services resulting from this process are provided on an individual basis, regardless of diagnosis, or, if the person chooses, in small groups. The person has the right to choose which staff person he/she wishes to utilize as support staff within reasonable financial and organizational parameters of Centra Wellness Network, including any of our service provider organizations. Within the same parameters, the person also has a right to hire his/her own support staff with the potential use of a Fiscal Intermediary (a third party that is used to help the person to manage an allocated support budget).
If a person only requires medication management services, it is available by itself without the process described above.
