Our Welcome Center is where all Independence Center services begin. We have a very helpful and efficient approach to qualifying people and providing access to services. Once we have screened a person and determined eligibility, he or she is then qualified to receive any of our services.
To be considered for eligibility, one must be:
- Diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness
- 18 years of age or older
In some cases, we will provide a mental health assessment to determine eligibility.
We strive to provide assistance to anyone who comes through our doors. We treat each person with dignity and respect. If we determine that we are not a good fit for your needs, we will refer you other services or organizations we trust.
