What Happens Here
 
We are people with psychiatric problems helping each other recover to lead as complete a life as possible.

•• We don’t give out money, medicine, advice, or other professional services.

•• Our volunteer staff has special training to make sure the Center runs smoothly. 

•• Members meet to decide on activities, what work needs to be done, and members volunteer to do it.  No one has to volunteer if they’re not ready or able, or don't want to.

••  Whether you get a check, work, have no income, whatever your beliefs, sexual orientation, color, nationality, culture, back-ground, history, if you have a serious mental health issue and can follow the member’s 20 rules you are welcome and we want to meet you.

 
At a drop-in center consumers (people with psychiatric disorders) set policy and determine the leadership. The Board of Directors is made up of at least 51% consumers. At a drop-in center consumers negotiate the funding contracts and outcome measures. We developed the vision, mission, and determined the criteria for membership and services.
 
Research indicates that peer-run organizations can be as effective as formal talk therapy and provider-run programs in helping people stay out of the hospital, out of jail, and in avoiding suicide attempts and completions.
