Come join a community that supports mental health recovery,

NorthStar is unique because we create an intentional community to combat the negative symptoms of isolation and alienation. Our community approach to mental health recovery means support is everywhere. It empowers members to actively address their own symptoms and assist others in their recovery.

We are a comfortable, stigma-free environment where you can engage in meaningful activity and peer support. Here, you are able to utilize your strengths and talents to work together with peers and staff to run a nonprofit. In this community, instead of group therapy and other traditional clinical services, members are doing things like operating the reception desk, making healthy lunches, maintaining records on our databases, and performing outreach and advocacy in our community. By working together and establishing positive relationships, people build skills as well as self-confidence and find a sense of purpose.
