Wellness Centers

2021-06-15T11:18:25-07:00

Our Wellness Centers are rooted in the Strengths Model, which is an evidence-based practice that utilizes each person’s unique talents, skills, knowledge, interests, and other resources to help them move beyond the formal mental health system and achieve meaningful life goals. We recognize that mental health providers have a tremendous impact on the people we serve and that every interaction provides the opportunity to either build up or tear down a person’s hope and belief in their ability to achieve their dreams. Our goal is to provide services in a manner that lifts people up and communicates a belief that life beyond the mental health system is possible.

What We Do

Our Wellness Centers offer a range of individual and group services, such as case management, peer support, training workshops, and activity groups, which help people identify and achieve goals related to various life domains:

  • Housing, food, and other basic needs
  • Employment

  • Finance and insurance
  • Legal and immigration
