We recognize that the key concepts of recovery, resiliency and support are essential to improving the wellness and quality of life of all persons affected with mental illness. Mental illness should not be an obstacle to a full and meaningful life. Services should be designed to meet the individual needs of those living with mental illness and their family members.
