Welcome to the Thomas M. Wernert Center!

Our center is known as a peer operated center. We believe that no one can understand the experiences of living with mental illness better than someone who has also walked down that road. With this belief in place, the majority of our team, like our members who attend the Wernert Center, are on a journey of mental health recovery and wellness.

This unique peer to peer support helps end the feelings of isolation and stigma that is often experienced by many of us.

Within a safe, welcoming and encouraging environment, we find hope through socialization, coping skills, and health and well-being opportunities that move us from not only surviving, but thriving in spite of a mental illness.
