Recovery is
possible, here’s
the evidence

Telecare was founded on the belief that rehabilitation and recovery from serious mental illness are possible. We call our unique recovery approach the Recovery-Centered Clinical System, or RCCS. The RCCS is based on a belief that recovery can happen, but it does not cause recovery to happen. Instead, the RCCS strives to create an environment of mutual respect, curiosity and non-judgment between staff and clients that supports recovery. You can learn more about RCCS here.

We don’t just hope for recovery. We’ve seen it. Our team goes above and beyond to help clients on their recovery journey, making a lasting difference in their lives. After getting services at Telecare, clients company-wide responded to the Mental Health Statistical Improvement Project (MHSIP) Survey, and said:

90% Staff believed I could change, grow & recover

80% I am better able to deal with crisis

80% I am better able to control my life

74% My symptoms are not bothering me as much

80% I deal more effectively with daily problems

Telecare is full of stories that show with hope and help, recovery is possible.


Let us take care of you, while you take care of them.
