Mission Statement

"My Place- Center for Wellness provides a Supportive Community, and Programs, that Empower Members in their Journey Toward Mental Health Recovery."

Description

What is My Place - Center for Wellness?

The philosophy behind peer-run organizations ("peer-run" meaning that the program is entirely staffed by persons with a mental health diagnosis) is that by working together and sharing experiences Members have had in the community, Members are able to help each other. The fear of the mental health professional is taken away at a peer-run organization, because everyone has been through similar experiences,

My Place- Center for Wellness is a non-profit organization that provides a safe, supportive and normalizing environment for individuals labeled "mentally ill" in the community. Especially those who are isolated in society, rejecting participation in traditional mental health programs, and to whom even sheltered employment settings are not meeting their needs. My Place- Center for Wellness offers an atmosphere of acceptance where individuals feel needed and grow in self-worth, dignity and self-respect.
