MHANYS CarePath™ program supports individuals 12 and over who are experiencing a setback managing their mental health. The CarePath™ program provides a certified Coach who assists the individual in their recovery. The Coach also assists their chosen supporters in this recovery process, be they family members or friends. However, the individual may also choose to just use the support of the Coach. The program support is available for up to 90 days.
MHANYS CarePath™ program is a non-clinical program aimed at introducing practices that encourage an awareness of all the dimensions of health and wellness. In designing a CarePath participants develop a wellness mindset.
Whether individuals in recovery are participating in the program with family members, friends or only the CarePath™ Coach, the goal is they all participate together. MHANYS CarePath™ strengthens intergenerational family mental health as each participant connects to their own mind-body health.
