The LivingRoom Drop In was opened in 1993 to provide a welcoming and safe hang-out for the local mentally ill. Located at 528 Powell Street, it is a large bright and safe space for people to come to.
The LivingRoom offers a variety of structured and unstructured programs to encourage participation of people, particularly those who are not already involved with the formal mental health system. A particular goal is to teach social and life skills so as to enhance their ability to maintain a stable and as independent as possible living situation and to improve the quality of their lives.
The LivingRoom has seen membership grow each year, showing that there is greater need for community services that assist people with a mental health history.
