Social and Recreational Programs
The program allows a safe space for those with mental health challenges to feel a sense of belonging. People battling a mental illness often feel that they have lost control of their lives. Mental illness may have distanced them from friends and family, resulting in low self-esteem and little self-confidence.
Activities include weekly community trips as well as an annual camping trip in the summer months. Our Recreation Program offers meaningful activities to resident and community participants alike. This program can help participants regain their emotional footing and help them make connections again; builds the bridge from isolation to physical activity, good nutrition, affordable entertainment, and most importantly, a community of peers.
