Mental Health Community Centers (MHCCI) is a local nonprofit that helps those managing mental health. We are planning on building gardens at each of our 4 locations. We are looking for volunteers to help out at our Sarasota location in managing the garden and training our members on taking care of a garden. We provide free lunch to our members every day and will be planting foods that can be used from garden to table. We are looking for knowledgeable volunteers to help with our garden program.
About Mental Health Community Centers, Prospect House
240B S TUTTLE AVE, SARASOTA, FL 34237, US
MHCC provides a safe environment, promoting wellness, for individuals managing mental health.
MHCC provides opportunities to enhance emotional health through situation-solution discussions and support groups, goal setting and performance sessions, a friendly caring atmosphere, and social activities to assist in problem-solving. We also offer vocational and educational training opportunities such as computer training, cooking, nutrition, creative arts, self-esteem building activities, independent living skills, etc. Social and recreational activities offered include beach/picnic outings, theater, library, physical fitness, sporting events, bowling, visits to local attractions.
At MHCC, peers support one another in reciprocal relationships. Peers have "been there, done that" and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation. Research has shown that peer-run self-help groups yield improvement in psychiatric symptoms resulting in decreased hospitalization, larger social support networks and enhanced esteem and social functioning.
We'll work with your schedule.
