Self-Help Centers

Self-Help Centers provide a safe, confidential and supportive environment for those dealing with mental illness. Operated by and for mental health consumers, these Centers provide support for individuals who want to take control of their lives. Individuals who share a disability have something to offer each other which cannot always be provided by traditional services. The Centers are run by welcoming and friendly consumer staff, who provide services with respect and dignity. The Centers are drop in and you may stop by anytime during our open hours.

We provide the following services:

  • Connect mental health consumers with resources
  • Network with and heal one another through peer supported events and social activities
  • Education through various support groups
  • Wellness and Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Groups
  • One-on-one peer support
