A community of people with shared mental and physical health and/or substance use disorder struggles working together to achieve their full potential.
Through participation in The Connection Center, members are able to reclaim important life necessities integral to their identities that they may have lost due to their illness: mental and physical wellness, self-esteem, friendships, family, employment and education. They may also receive services and support that is individualized to their recovery, learn life skills and how to balance responsibilities and incorporate wellness activities into their lives.
