Consumer/Family Satisfaction Team, Mental Health AmericaThe Consumer and Family Satisfaction Team (CFST) represents an innovative approach to gathering data by organizing teams of consumers and family members to affirm satisfactory services, identify gaps or trends in service provision, support providers in improving existing services, and identify consumer needs. This program is an essential element of a recovery-oriented mental health system in that it serves as a mechanism for the consumer voice to be heard. Consumer feedback is gathered through confidential face-to-face surveys and questionnaires, as well as focus groups. All survey tools are "service specific" and can be linked to a provider agency. As feedback is gathered, reports are generated and sent to the provider and its funding source. After a report is finalized, CFST initiates an accountability meeting. This follow-up process allows CFST to highlight positive outcomes from surveys, as well as discuss with the provider recommendations for quality improvement. Providers are expected to notify the Team in writing of any changes they implement based upon the feedback in their report.

Dragonfly Forest - Camp Program - Westtown SchoolDragonfly Forest is designed for children living with serious illnesses and disorders suffering physically and emotionally not only from coping with the treatments necessary to sustain life, but also from coping with the loss of their childhood. These children spend much of their lives in medical facilities with adults rather than at playgrounds and with other children just being kids. At Dragonfly Forest between morning swims and evening campfires, approximately 120 children become actors on stage, swimmers, artists, athletes, canoe paddlers, stargazers and, most importantly, friends. Our campers experience a magical transformation, as they sing and dance, learn to soar, and develop important friendships that often last a lifetime. At first glance, Dragonfly Forest looks like any other traditional summer camp. There is swimming, boating, fishing, archery, arts and crafts, ropes courses, boating and nature activities. Yet, look more closely and you will find that Dragonfly Forest is specifically designed for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses and disorders and allows them to safely enjoy the activities of a "traditional" camp. Dragonfly Forest is more than a fun-filled getaway. It helps children to better cope with the day-to-day challenges they face. Nestled among hundreds of rolling acres in rural, pristine, Chester County, PA, this unique location provides excitement and adventure for campers in the great outdoors. Between early morning crafts and evening carnivals, children whose lives have been a series of medical procedures and hospital stays are transformed into just "kids." They have a chance to be with others coping with similar illnesses or conditions and realize that they are not alone. Most importantly, the prescription for the day is fun, fun, fun! Laughter, giggles, friendships, excitement, and bursting energy abound throughout our magical forest of tall pines, majestic oaks, nature trails, and a fourteen acre lake. Campers are empowered to do things they never dreamed they could do. They are infused with a spirit of accomplishment at every turn and are allowed to forget that "they have what they have."

Dragonfly Forest - Dragonfly AwayDragonfly Away extends te reach of the Dragonfly Forest camp program into Philadelphia area hospitals and rehabs centers. This program serves the kids whose illnesses prevent them from being able to attend summer sessions on the Dragonfly CAMPus. "If the kids can't get to the camp, we'll take the camp to the kids," says Executive Director Fred Weiner. "And because we're big believers in the setting as an important part of the whole camp experience, we will try as best as we can - through creative means - to transform an area of the hospital so to the children it will seem more like camp than hospital." Creative transformation, Dragonfly Forest-style, can mean everything from setting up a small-scale "carnival," to engaging kids in individual camp projects such as wood shop, to "sleeping under the stars" in pop-up tents and sleeping bags. Daily activities will be planned and scheduled for the kids in much the same way they're planned for kids on the Dragonfly CAMPus. The Dragonfly Away Camp structure is flexible to serve the needs of individual children. The program can last three to five days in duration, and are tailored for the bedside for individual kids, a floor of the hospital for groups, or for multiple groups in a hospital.Montgomery*Main Site (Dragonfly Forest)Dragonfly Forest

Wellness Recovery Course using WRAP - Wellness Rec. ActionThe wellness course runs 8-12 weeks meeting weekly for two hours. WRAP is a program in which participants identify internal and external resources for facilitating recovery, and then use these tools to create their own, individualized plan for successful living. The creation of a WRAP plan which happens over the course length generally begins with the development of a personal Wellness Toolbox, consisting of simple, safe, and free or low-cost self-management strategies such as a healthy diet, exercise, sleep patterns and pursuit of adult life roles. The person then uses this Toolbox to create an indivdualized plan for using each strategy to obtain and maintain their recovery. The plan includes identification of "early warning signs" of symptom exacerbation or crisis and how the Toolbox can help people to manage to feel better. WRAP also encourages development of a crisis plan, which states how the person would like to be treated in times of crisis (similar to an advance directive for inpatient psychiatric care), as well as a post-crisis plan for back on the road to recovery.CumberlandNAMI Pennsylvania Cumberland/Perry CountiesNAMI Pennsylvania Cumberland/Perry Counties
