According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 1 in 4 Americans live with a mental disorder, estimates indicate that nearly two-thirds of all people with a diagnosable mental illness do not seek treatment, especially people from diverse communities. Lack of knowledge, fear of disclosure, rejection of friends, and discrimination are a few reasons why people with mental illness don’t seek help.

We provide client-focused, goal-driven & evidence-based treatment designed to achieve immediate results and long-term recovery. We offer a full complement of support services to assist with transition & readjustment both individually & through a comprehensive family care model.
