Tuolumne County Enrichment Center

EC main
 A Peer-Run Community Center for Wellness & Recovery

 We help reduce stigma and promote recovery & whole person health for adults living with mental health challenges and/or addictions. 

The Mission of the Enrichment Center is to give hope to those with lived experience of mental illness so that they can achieve their fullest potential. 

  • Provide opportunities for growth by being the "guide on the side" for peers in coping skills, social skills and health concerns. 
  • Encourage all staff and volunteers to be positive role models of wellness.
  • Provide structure that helps peers model for each other the importance of helping others, learning and socialization.
  • Provide quality services in a caring, non-judgmental manner.
  • Reduce stigma by encouraging peers to tell their story in the community.
  • Empower each member through encouragement and celebration of their successes.
  • Lead groups using the peer model of collective problem-solving and shared experience.

The Enrichment Center is funded through the voter approved Prop 63, known as the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). Tuolumne County Behavioral Health Department (TCBHD) manages the center. 

 Stepping Stones to Recovery

Recovery is a different process for everyone. Each person must learn for themselves what recovery means to them. For some, it may mean achieving a personal goal to live a fulfilling and productive life; for others, it may mean effectively managing the symptoms of their illness. 

It is important that everyone have the hope that recovery is possible and that there are choices regarding services and supports in the community.
