PROS Overview

The DePaul Personalized Recovery Oriented Services (PROS) Program, provides evidence-based clinical and rehabilitation services to individuals working to achieve recovery from a mental illness. Participants engage in services that can directly capitalize on strengths and experience to eliminate barriers created by mental illness.

Individualized Job Placement and Support (IPS) is a component of the PROS program which assists individuals in obtaining a competitive job in the community and is comprised of a menu of services tailored to the individual’s needs.

Structured skill development and support assists individuals in developing recovery skills which promote movement toward life goals. These goals could include work, education, community membership, apartment living and other life roles.

DePaul PROS is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. with the option of flexibility for individuals who need different accommodations. Individuals are strongly encouraged to supplement their recovery efforts with community-based activities.

Benefits Counseling

DePaul has benefits counselors who help individuals manage the reporting of employment income, review how income will affect benefits, and offer options for those who need to keep public benefits such as SSI, SSD and/or Medicaid in place while they are employed.

Tours are available for potential service recipients, family members and other community providers. Please call us with any questions or to schedule a tour.
