The POINTE

Stigma is the reason most people don’t talk about their personal experiences with mental health challenges. Stigma is discrimination.

People and families with mental health challenges are often discriminated against because of negative and incorrect believes that society has.

What Is A Drop-In Center?

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.

Drop-In Centers are nonjudgmental in nature and give consumers a place to feel safe, secure and “at home”.

Drop-In Centers offer a feeling of belonging and self-worth. Every Center is different and its own personality and membership makeup. Some offer a more structured environment than others. Quite often as a center grows it goes through stages and changes in its program structure and what it offers, according to the membership needs. Drop-in centers are consumer run and managed.

Drop-in centers give consumers the opportunity to develop through options that support personal growth. We encourage good socialization skills, support, sharing, and the freedom to participate without stigma and discrimination. Drop-in centers help keep mental health consumers stabilized in recovery.
