Educational services are integrated within the treatment model in the inpatient hospital and PHP’s. PrairieCare partners with the following school districts to provide schooling at all of our sites serving youth: Intermediate School District 287, Eastern Carver County Schools, Maplewood/North St. Paul/Oakdale, and Rochester Public Schools. The educational model at PrairieCare was created to optimize learning while receiving psychiatric care.
The educational model at PrairieCare includes 2-hours of schooling every day focusing on age appropriate curriculum using engaging multi-dimensional lessons. Licensed teachers use the newest technology such as ipads and smartboards to deliver vibrant and interesting lessons for all ages.
We are dedicated to helping patients and families understand problems they may be facing and the services we offer. This includes fact sheets and workshops on mental health and treatment options in the community. PrairieCare is also a fierce advocate for those with mental illness and has teamed with community partners to help decrease stigma.
Throughout our website and reading material, we refer to many different types of health professionals. To better educate our visitors, we provide a short explanation of each type of mental health professional.
