The Importance of Mental Health:
At Samaritan Center we believe that mental health is vital to wellbeing and achieving one’s fullest potential.Good mental health allows us to feel good about ourselves, participate in life and contribute to our communities. People who have good mental health are able to cope with stress, work productively, foster strong relationships, and contribute to our community.

How We Help:
Samaritan Center was founded in 1974 on the belief that there is a close relationship between the mind, body, spirit, and community. We provide professional counseling, integrative medicine, peer support, wellness education, and skills-building workshops that are accessible and affordable. Many clients are uninsured or under-insured low-income families, and veterans and military families struggling with service-related trauma. Our focus on the whole family means we serve all ages - from very young children to older adults - and can truly impact entire family systems.
