PLAN, a program of Jewish Family Service, is dedicated to providing comprehensive support toward a meaningful life in community for individuals with mental illness and their families.

"1 in 5 Americans over the age of 18 have a mental health condition.

Approximately 1 in 25 adults in the U.S.- 98 million, or 4%- experiences a serious mental illness, such as bipolar, schizophrenia, or major depressive disorder, in a given year that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities."

-National Institute of Mental Health

Severe mental illness causes disruptions in life—broken relationships, tension within families, hospitalizations and incarcerations, leading to frustration, anxiety and loneliness.

PLAN is a place you can come to find understanding and support--a hand!  Services include professional psychotherapy, both group and individual, with therapists who understand severe mental illness, case management and referrals.    


Through the transformative power of the Clubhouse Model, our newly launched Clubhouse, PLAN @ 1121 Rock, located at 1121 Rockingham Dr., Richardson TX, offers a work-ordered day with emphasis on sharing meaningful work with meaningful relationships.  We run the Clubhouse together, lift each other up and help each other to realize our individual dreams.  It is not a treatment center.  Rather it is a launch pad to find a better life.

And for family members, it is a place where we know our loved ones will find opportunities to engage in community and grow in independence.
