A sometimes hidden gem among county services are the Wellness Centers or Hubs. Scattered throughout the county are six sites which offer welcoming, accessible, and supportive community spaces for individuals with a wide range of mental health needs. The sites have the goals of building community, encouraging independent skills, and providing support through groups and activities.
Bay Area Community Services (BACS, www.bayareacs.org) offers four hubs: Hedco, Towne House, South County, and Valley. Bonita House (www.bonitahouse.org) has two sites: the Berkeley Wellness Center and Casa Ubuntu Creative Wellness Center.
We are pleased to have the directors of wellness programs from each agency speak with us on Wednesday evening. LeAnne Rozner from Bonita House is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Clarise Burton is from BACS and she or a representative will be joining us. The speakers will be describing their programs and respond to questions.
Speaker Meeting starts at Wednesday, November 16, 7:30 pm
