Mental Health Services

Mental illnesses can affect people of any age, race, gender, or income. While these medical conditions can disrupt a person’s thinking, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning, more than 2/3 of Americans who have a mental illness live in the community and lead productive lives.

We work to eliminate the stigma of living with mental illness and offer services to empower people to improve their lives.
