Nationally, nearly 1 in 5 adults in the United States suffer from mental illness.
Yet many struggle silently due to the stigmatization and shame surrounding it. Mental illness often goes hand in hand with other challenges, such as job loss, homelessness and addiction. Even seemingly ordinary tasks like paying bills, getting ready for work or housekeeping can be overwhelming for someone with mental illness.
After years of struggling with depression, anxiety and ADHD, Curtis was forced to take a leave of absence from work. Medical staff at a local psychiatric facility recommended he transfer to the Mental Health Respite program at Renaissance Village. "This program has been a godsend," said Curtis. "It's given me the opportunity to concentrate solely on my mental health, which has been a huge weight off my shoulders."
We offer a variety of programs specifically suited to particular mental health needs and circumstances. All programs operate at Heritage Place at Renaissance Village.
