Living with Mental Illness

mental illness

Many individuals live with serious and persistent mental illness, struggling with anxiety, severe depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

For some, the simplest acts, whether it’s going to work, taking children to school, or shopping or groceries can be distorted by mental illness. Navigating daily life can seem nearly insurmountable, not only for the person suffering facing these challenges, but for their loved ones as well.

We offer a way for our friends and neighbors who live with a serious mental illness to learn methods for coping and skills for living independently in the community.
