CooperRiis is a specialized residential therapeutic "healing farm community" for young adults ages 18 and over diagnosed with schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder, bipolar disorder, Asperger's, depression and/or borderline personality disorder.

With the use of modern psychiatry and psychotherapy, residents receive both individual and group therapy, in addition to family support and education. Utilizing a "menu of services", residents have use of psycho-educational therapies, access to psychopharmacology, service and work training and nutritional and physical exercise coaching.

The work-training program consists of residents choosing one of six programs to contribute to the community: housekeeping, farming and gardening, maintenance, art barn, kitchen and woodshop.

CooperRiis offers its residents a variety of visual and performing arts including pottery, photography, painting and sculpting and acting. For outdoor recreation, swimming, fishing and hiking are available on the 80 acre farm.
