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. They are nonjudgmental in nature and give consumers a place to feel safe, secure and “at home.” The main goal of Drop-In Centers is to provide a feeling of belonging and self-worth.
Every Center is Different and its own personality and membership makeup. Quite often as a center growsk it goes through stages and changes in program structure and what it offers while staying focused on our membership's needs. The Pointe is managed and operated by the consumer.
Drop-in centers give consumers the opportunity to develop through options that supports personal growth. We encourage good socialization skills, support, sharing and the freedom to patriciate without stigma or discrimination. The Pointe can help to keep mental health consumers stabilized in recovery.
