WHAT IS A DROP-IN CENTER?

Drop-In Centers were created to provide a place for consumers of mental health systems to provide peer support and socialization with other who have similar lived experiences.
Drop-In Centers are nonjudgmental in nature and give consumers a place to feel safe, secure and “at home”.
Drop-In Centers offer a feeling of belonging and self-worth. Every Center is different and its own personality and membership makeup. Some offer a more structured environment than others. Quite often as a center grows it goes through stages and changes in its program structure and what it offers, according to the membership needs. Drop-in centers are consumer run and managed.
Drop-in centers give consumers the opportunity to develop through options that support personal growth.  We encourage good socialization skills, support, sharing, and the freedom to participate without stigma and discrimination. Drop-in centers help keep mental health consumers stabilized in recovery.
