Good News in the Mental Health Community

Good News in the Mental Health Community

By Kathy Powers, C4 Member

On Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:00 a.m., C4 on Broadway at 5710 N. Broadway opened its doors to the mental health community with a drop-in center to help people with mental illnesses reintegrate into their community. Led by Erin Lipman, Herb Cobbs and Troy Butler, the center offers a consumer-driven, safe haven and comfortable environment to assist participants to empower themselves toward recovery. The center offers people to make choices and follow through on them.

The center gives consumers a place to go, a place to be. One is able to relax, enjoy and just experience. Hopefully, participants will attend and avoid isolating in their homes and on the streets.

The center’s hours are 11:00-4:00, Monday through Friday. Hours may increase to weekends when needed. 69 people registered to drop in during the first week.
