For our July General Meeting our presenter will be Mike Krechevsky, a family support specialist from The Felton Institute.
The Felton Institute focuses on supporting individuals experiencing early psychosis and their families. In his presentation he will go over the specifics of their two year program with a focus on recovery with an interdisciplinary team. Their approach includes therapy, medication as a bridge to recovery with a “low and slow” philosophy, peer counseling conducted by those with lived experience, psycho education and employment counseling, as well as family support with lived experience providers. Mike will also share some interesting findings he has uncovered in the last three years that can help demystify the condition of early psychosis (Hint: Vincent Van Gough sold two paintings and a couple of drawings in his lifetime).
We look forward to welcoming Mike Krechevsky into our NAMI San Mateo community and learning together about treatments provided by the Felton Institute and the experience of early psychosis.
Felton Institute responds to human needs by providing cutting edge, evidence-based social services that transform lives.
Felton Institute can trace its roots back to 1889. The organization is named for Katharine “Kitty” Felton, its dedicated and maverick director known for tirelessly working to help children and families in need. Kitty Felton believed in the mandate that San Francisco citizens in crisis must have access to social services and resources in order to help them build upon their inherent strengths and develop self-sufficiency.
130 years later, Felton Institute remains the oldest nonsectarian, nonprofit social service provider in San Francisco. Felton Institute serves clients throughout San Francisco, Alameda, Monterey, San Mateo and Kern counties.
