WRAP Workshop offered
Begins Oct. 12, 2015
We are hosting a six-week Wellness Recovery Action Plan Workshop on Mondays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at MOCA House, beginning October 12, 2015.

The  Workshop is free, and materials are provided. WRAP is a personalized recovery program to help people with mental health issues to learn coping skills and recognize triggers. Call us at 330-264-1590 to register.

We believe recovery is possible.

Our mission is to provide a place of safety where all persons affected by a mental health concern feel accepted and can build hope through peer-based programming, and deliver education, suicide prevention, and support to family members and the community.

We're the local affiliate for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, serving Wayne and Holmes Counties, Ohio as a nonprofit organization. We offer peer support for individuals with mental illness, family members, veterans, and suicide survivors. We offer NAMI educational programs, maintain MOCA House Recovery Center, and under our umbrella of services, we're able to bring together nationally-recognized programs and peer supported activities for local residents.

Maybe you, or someone you know, could benefit from our peer support programs.
SORRY! We are under construction to bring you a better website. Please bear with us as we make these improvements, and check back often.
