A Different Approach to Mental Health Services
As a leading pioneer of psychiatric rehabilitative services, Community Friendship offers a comprehensive range of recovery-based programs. We provide support and training in self-sufficiency and independent living, career development, and full integration in the community.
We take a holistic approach, working with the whole person – mind, body, and spirit and not just their illness. We believe that all individuals have the ability to grow and reach their full potential.
