The Potential to Learn
The Center’s mission is distinguished by its longstanding belief that all individuals have the potential to learn, the capacity for change and the right to live a meaningful life in the community of their choice. Our mission is to provide an array of innovative services which promote personal growth and independence, foster hope and enhance the quality of life of people with mental health conditions, co-occurring substance use conditions and/or developmental disabilities or brain injuries.
The Center maintains a specific commitment to providing services to persons whose complex and challenging needs have typically been barriers to successful community living.
The Parenting Well curriculum was designed to assist providers of services to adults with mental health challenges who are parenting or considering parenthood in their efforts to deliver holistic recovery services. “This innovative approach will enhance our ability to include important themes of parenting and participation in family life into the way we support the recovery journey of those we serve,” said President and CEO, Patti Maguire. Vicki Fredrickson, the Center’s Vice President of Mental Health Services expressed her enthusiasm for this training and coaching project: “We are thrilled to be working alongside DMH, Brandeis University and other community providers, all of whom, like the Edinburg Center are committed to a Family-Focused approach.”
