Empowering People to Regain their Lives
The Drop-in Center Mission
To provide a safe environment for people to socialize, communicate and participate in
activities that support the recovery process.
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 peer 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 rules you are welcome and we want to meet you.
At our drop-in center, consumers (people with psychiatric disorders) decide which programs and activities we will have. We developed the vision, mission, and determined the criteria for membership and services. Circles of Care Administration
assures that we have the support we need, that we stay withing our vision and mission, and assures that the Center operates smoothly.
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. Drop-in Centers DO NOT replace medical and professional treatment for mental illness.
