Tri County Mental Health and wellness is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting and promoting healthy mental health for individuals, families, and community.  Our goal is to support people in need and to help alleviate wait time to be seen in our formal system. To meet these objectives we offer:

  • One on one coaching and support
  • Peer based recovery group programs
  • Wellness workshops
  • Community education & crisis support
  • Suicide Prevention & Awareness
  • Stigma reduction

This center is not designed to replace any programs currently offered but to compliment services and provide additional supports.

The funding from our fundraiser is used to support the center so we can provide services to people for free
