About

Our Population

Individuals we typically work with have diagnoses of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or depression. Residents at Academy House have ranged in age from their mid-twenties to individuals over the age of 65. Some residents stay for a year or two while they work on learning symptom management and independent living skills, while other residents choose to remain at Academy House for many years. All of our residents are kind, empathetic, unique individuals with the potential for further growth and accomplishment.

Our Program

Academy House offers 24/7 on-site staff supervision and support, medication management and supervision, and nutritious family-style meals. Therapeutic and engaging activities offered include Dance Movement Therapy, yoga, gardening, art, Music Therapy, cooking and nutrition, documentary discussion, dance and music classes, current events discussion, and meditation and mindfulness groups. Many of the groups at Academy House incorporate mindfulness based stress reduction techniques. Residents are always welcome to suggest groups or activities that they would like to engage in. Staff at Academy House work with each resident to develop an Individualized Action Plan to address their personal goals and build positive coping mechanisms.

Our Home

Some individuals with mental illnesses may benefit from long-term care. They may need assistance with activities of daily living, supervision to ensure medication compliance, or a stable and structured environment to manage their symptoms more effectively. Many residential programs address these needs in different ways, and choosing the ‘right’ one for yourself or your loved one is often a complex task. We are available to answer any questions you may have about Academy House to determine whether we are the program you are looking for. If you are seeking a small, highly individualized, family-like atmosphere, Academy House may be the right choice. With 24/7 supervision every day of the year, a capacity of 18 residents, medication management and supervision, therapeutic groups and activities, and exceptionally trained compassionate staff members, Academy House provides a structured long-term home environment. Residents can work towards greater symptom management, increasing their self-esteem, and learning independent living skills at their own pace.
