A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

“I was living at the Regional Center on a mental health commitment following two suicide attempts the previous year. Although I was advocating for my best interest, my mental health know-how was very limited. I had lived with depression and other symptoms of poor mental health since childhood and had unreasonable expectations of what a good life meant and the work it took to get there. I was very ashamed and desperate for a better life. For my reentry back into the community, I was referred to CenterPointe.

At CenterPointe I received a housing voucher, medication management, an individual counselor, caseworkers, and attended the day rehabilitation program. I should have been very successful the first time around. It took time and CenterPointe stuck with me.

It wasn’t until I began working with a CenterPointe Peer Support Specialist that I could break down my unrealistic expectations and appreciate my reality. From there, I made better use of my resources and worked towards independence by taking small steps. Now, I have a stronger support network, a fulfilling job helping others who live with mental health challenges, and more courage today thanks to the support of a full staff of professionals and peers who helped me look after myself. I am so grateful.”
