Developing and Achieving Life Goals
For millions of youths, struggling with mental illness can impair their ability to do well in school, at home, or in the community. The Rehabilitation for Empowerment, Natural Supports, Education, and Work (RENEW) Program is a structured transition planning and individualized wraparound process designed to empower youth to pursue a solid transition from youth to adult life.
In conjunction with the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability, Greater Nashua Mental Health utilizes the RENEW program to help clients ages 15-18 develop their own future goals and client driven strengths based on strategies for achieving them.
Plans are often aimed at academic success in high school and beyond, developing employability skills, and obtaining employment. The program involves collaboration with schools, vocational rehabilitation, and other organizations to support clients in achieving their goals.
We encourage you to learn more about the RENEW program from the UNH Institute on Disability. For information on how to participate, contact your GNMH provider.
