Tasks Unlimited provides supported employment, housing & recovery services for adults with serious and persistent mental illness.
Tasks Unlimited provides mental health rehabilitation through supported employment and community living for people with serious and persistent mental illness so they have the opportunity to live full lives integrated into the community.
Tasks Unlimited offers vocational rehabilitation with the belief that employees are less likely to be hospitalized when they live and work together as a group. Our training is designed to help people with mental illness integrate into the community and provide more employment opportunities at a lower cost than conventional treatment programs.
At Tasks Unlimited, we believe:
- People experiencing mental health problems are more like other people than they are different.
- Skill training and development that focuses on strengths is more useful than approaches that focus on problems.
- Stable daily performance is preferable to episodic periods of high achievement.
- A natural healing occurs over time.
- A stable, supportive environment and productive lifestyle promote natural healing.
- Dependency is an outcome of inappropriate treatment rather than a symptom of mental illness.
- Dependency is remediable and preventable.
- Adults with serious and persistent mental illness are able to form and develop healthy adult relationships.
- Interdependence best describes healthy adult relationships.
- Pursuing independence without developing meaningful and supportive peer relationships frequently leads to isolation and loneliness that can hinder personal growth and healing.
- Independent and interdependent living skills are most effectively taught by peers.
- Financial dependence is the least acceptable and least necessary form of dependency for adults experiencing serious and persistent mental illness because most are capable of productive work.
- Improved self-esteem is the most effective antidote for dependency and is a prerequisite for self-sufficiency.
- Identity, dignity and income are three excellent sources of self-esteem. Work is a primary source of all three.
