Mental Health Community Centers (MHCCI) is a local nonprofit that helps those managing mental health. We currently have a garden in our Sarasota location, that we are looking to get more membership involvement with. Volunteers will help out in managing the garden and training our members on taking care of a garden. We can expand on this to provide lunches or snacks to our members utilizing the garden and what it has to offer. We want to encompass more fruits/vegetables, etc. that can be used from garden to table. We are looking for knowledgeable volunteers to help with this garden program. In response to CoVid; we have temperature checks at the front door, staff and members wear masks and socially distance themselves to follow the CDC guidelines.

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.
