HERO HOUSE: AN OVERLOOKED RESOURCE FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS
Lack of self-esteem and isolation are two of the main issues faced by individuals with mental illness. Membership in HERO House can help with these and other roadblocks to recovery.
HERO House is often overlooked as a resource for adults with serious mental illness. A free clubhouse, members are provided with educational, vocational, and social opportunities. Its mission is to facilitate the recovery and rehabilitation of adults with mental illness in East King County. Their goal is to help members achieve and sustain satisfying, meaningful roles and lives in the community.
Olga Yarmoshik has been Program Coordinator of HERO House for the past seven years. She will be accompanied by several members of HERO House who will explain the programs and results of their participation. Join us as we learn how HERO House can help individuals with mental illness.
