The Drop-in Center has reopened!

Please visit us for support and socializing 7 days a week.

Monday - Friday, 1pm-7pm

Saturday-Sunday, 2-6pm

The Drop-In Center is for adults 18 years and over that live with a mental health condition. It provides a safe, stigma-free place for participants to socialize and find new recovery skills and tools. The Drop-In Center’s Club House Model is a comprehensive program of support and opportunities. It is not a traditional mental health agency as there are no therapists or psychiatrists on staff. Rather, the program includes elements of small group work, peer support, socialization activities, life skill building, and evidence-based job placement strategies.

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN

The Drop-In Center provides an array of services to individuals with a mental health diagnosis that, through social interactions, enhances their lives and promotes their involvement in the larger community. Social isolation is a problem for people with mental illness. The Drop-In Center serves as a source for reducing the effects of this debilitating isolation. Programming at the Drop-In Center promotes life skills development, enhances self-esteem and improves the overall quality of life for its participants through wellness programming.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“Sometimes I just have one of those days and no one can do anything about it, except for NAMI. Coming here may not take away my problem, but NAMI helps me create solutions and provides support.”

-NAMI Participant of 4 years

“Some participants have been coming here since the Drop-In Center opened up. They like it so much, it’s become a part of who they are.”
