Mental illness can affect anyone

Mental illness can affect anyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age or income level. Our quality health services for adults with mental illness make it possible for those we serve to recover and become productive members of the community. They work, attend school, socialize and become self-sufficient. We provide a system of support driven by our guiding principles: respect, responsibility and recovery. We believe that the mentally ill can recover, and their success stories, which are often dramatic, are the reason for our being.
