Our Commitment

Individuals experiencing mental distress are more likely to be the victims of violence, rather than perpetrators. While people like Walter Wallace may appear dangerous, they are best served by professionals trained to diffuse mental health crises.  Our center is committed to enhancing the understanding, compassion, care and well-being of individuals and families living with mental health and substance use disorders. We aim for a future where no one dies because of their mental health crisis.
