Using evidence-based practices and a creative mindset, MHSA-funded Wellness Centers provide integrated mental health services that address the whole person and aim to do “whatever it takes” to propel individuals forward in their recovery. Inyo County’s MHSA plan provides funding for two Wellness Centers, located in Bishop and Lone Pine.

What We Believe

Our Wellness Centers are rooted in the Strengths Model, which is an evidence-based practice that utilizes each person’s unique talents, skills, knowledge, interests, and other resources to help them move beyond the formal mental health system and achieve meaningful life goals. We recognize that mental health providers have a tremendous impact on the people we serve and that every interaction provides the opportunity to either build up or tear down a person’s hope and belief in their ability to achieve their dreams. Our goal is to provide services in a manner that lifts people up and communicates a belief that life beyond the mental health system is possible.

What We Do

Our Wellness Centers offer a range of individual and group services, such as case management, peer support, training workshops, and activity groups, which help people identify and achieve goals related to various life domains:

  • Housing, food, and other basic needs
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Finance and insurance
  • Legal and immigration
  • Supportive relationships
  • Health and wellness
  • Leisure and recreation
  • Spirituality and culture

Case management is available by appointment, year-round, throughout Inyo County.

Groups and workshops are available year-round. Schedules vary; calendars are posted monthly.

Who We Serve

Our Wellness Centers primarily serve individuals and families experiencing serious mental illness and/or homelessness. Persons who are underserved due to language barriers, cultural barriers, economic disadvantage, and rural living have priority in accessing our services. Services are available in Spanish. Everyone is welcome to utilize our drop-in services (shower, laundry, kitchen, phone, and computer) during drop-in hours.
