About Us

Board of Directors

“This is a pivotal moment for mental health; never before has there been such strong recognition of the value good mental health plays in the vitality of our community. The Mental Wellness Center provides a completely unique array of resources; outreach, education, advocacy, housing – and on a daily basis – meals for those who would otherwise go without. We have an outstanding staff and board and look forward to increasing and extending our services to younger people as one of our principal goals for 2021. It is an honor to serve with such talented, experienced and committed board and staff.”
