Welcome to Our Garden: Inspiring Hope During COVID-19

Thrive's Residential Services staff recently led a socially-distanced art project at our Barrington House Group Home. The activity served to inspire hope among residents during COVID-19, and is featured in the below video. The project was captured by photographer Connie Grosch, Multimedia and Publications Producer at the Rhode Island Foundation. The photos were taken to commemorate the 31 organizations that received funding from the COVID-19 Behavioral Health Fund, which was established by the Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner and health insurers at the Rhode Island Foundation.

The nearly $1.7 million in grant funding is helping nonprofit organizations support Rhode Islanders as they cope with behavioral health challenges brought on by the pandemic. Thrive Behavioral Health’s grant award has enabled it to expand telehealth services for individuals living with increased behavioral health symptoms and provide hazard pay to essential employees, including Thrive’s Residential Services staff.
 
Residential treatment helps individuals living with psychiatric disorders learn to manage their mental health symptoms while developing self-esteem, building life skills, and forming and strengthening relationships. The family-like atmosphere of Thrive's group homes is a major therapeutic tool that promotes increased quality of life and continued growth among residents.
