A continuing increase in client applications has led to plans to expand the square footage on the Perry Wellness Center campus. Awareness of the center’s services, combined with increased closures at state psychiatric facilities, appears to be spurring the growth in referrals to our recovery program.
Recently staff and peer clients of the center met with Mr. Glen Pickle, of Pickle Construction, as he reviewed plans for a new building on campus. The layout and size of the building will be very similar to the existing classroom building. Having another such building will allow the program to greatly increase its capacity, while better organizing services along specific behavioral health care needs; e.g., mental health or addiction. In addition to new building construction, modifications will be made to some existing structures, in order to provide the best services possible.
We’re all excited about the changes, and no one more than founder Stuart Perry. He explains, “We are excited about this increase in peer clients who wish to come to Perry Wellness Center. We welcome local and state partnerships that will allow us to construct another client service building and modify our existing classroom/services building.” Stuart feel that expansion of facilities and enrollment will allow the center to provide greater outreach in fulfilling its mission of advancing “personal health and well-being among persons with mental illness and addictive disorders.”
