United Way

Mental Health

in Partnership with

Cognitive Center was developed around the idea that our community needs a place where mental health would be the focus and a “safe” place for those suffering from mental disorders. We provide a service that is an alternative to the costly in-patient hospitals and psychiatric units.

Caring is what PHECC does best, and our patients not only learn to cope with mental illness, but they understand that there are people who care.

Mental Health

Mental health is a general term we use when we talk about our mind’s wellbeing. It includes the steps we take to prevent mental illness and introspection for our personal growth. Our approach is through education on the different mental health diagnoses. Our online education program consists of 32 modules with 4 different diagnoses to each module.
