The Skills Development program is provided as one component of Medicaid Rehabilitation Option services available from mental health providers, such as Centerstone.

Our partnership with Centerstone enables Milestones to offer Skills Development services to individuals experiencing mental health impairments. These rehabilitative services include coping skill education, coaching, and training provided in school, at home, or within social and community settings.

The goal is to modify and relieve symptoms that cause inappropriate and disruptive problems in relationships, social participation and activities of daily living.
