Feeling lost or alone? Not sure where to turn? If you or a loved one is faced with mental illness, there is help. Avita Community Partners offers a variety of mental health programs to individuals and families in the northeast Georgia area. Our mental health services are based on two models:
The Recovery Model which states that people have the potential to grow, learn, and heal and should be an active partner in their treatment and recovery by identifying their wants, needs, and goals.
The Episodes of Treatment Model that follows the idea that needs will vary over time and clients can leave our services when they’re no longer needed but can return if the need arises.
