Valley Packaging is now the grateful recipient of a generous grant from the Community Foundation’s Basic Needs Giving Partnership for its mental health support teenage/young adult programming at our Community OutReach Center (ORC), a partnered program with United Way Fox Cities.

VPI’s ORC is a mental health center serving individuals of the Fox Valley community, whose primary diagnosis is mental health, substance use, or dual diagnosis. The ORC will expand services to the teenage/young adult age population with the grant funds. ORC Youth and Young Adult Program will use the psychosocial rehabilitation approach to provide skill development and wellness management through in vivo side by side coaching while supporting indicators that teenagers and young adults do not view mental health treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation as recovery, but rather as discovery as this population is often navigating firsts in their lives (mental health diagnosis, employment, housing, relationships).
