The State Hospital Step Down program collaborates closely with Health and Human Services and all State Psychiatric Hospitals and works to build successful discharge plans for individuals who have been admitted to the state hospital for over 1 year. The State Hospital Step Down program is designed to step-down/transition individuals who are psychiatrically and/or medically fragile from inpatient state hospital settings to more appropriate community-based settings.

The primary duties of a Rehab Specialist include:

  1. Conduct a comprehensive pre-transition assessment for persons at the state hospital who are referred to the program, taking intellectual, developmental, medical, substance use and mental health conditions into consideration
  2. Provide pre-transition services while the individual is still in the state hospital for up to six months
  3. Develop and facilitate implementation of the Individual Transition Plan (ITP) and Person Centered Recovery Plan (PCRP), which must address clinical and housing needs
  4. Participate in the individual’s care throughout enrollment in the program, providing case management, skills training, group psychoeducation and crisis intervention services.
