Education and advocacy for individuals living with and recovering from mental health and substance addiction challenges.

ABOUT US:

The Campbell Center is an education and advocacy group for individuals living with and seeking treatment from mental health and substance addiction challenges, or "consumers".

Through our North Carolina and District of Columbia Leadership & Training Academies, The DC Recovery Network project, and the DC-based Child and Family Services Youth Program, consumers can proactively engage in their healing, personally and communally, through creative arts, workshops, and other community events. This enables them to build their skills in self-advocacy, communications, leadership, employment, and technology matters.

All of our programs are community based. We come to you by live Google Hangouts, online webinars, and in-person trainings and workshops.

OUR MISSION:

The Campbell Center is a recovery consumer education and advocacy group for individuals living with mental health and substance abuse/addiction issues. We seek social change on an individual level by supporting wellness and recovery, training in leadership and micro-enterprise, and fostering community engagement.

CORE BELIEFS:

At The Campbell Center, we believe wellness and recovery are non-linear processes. Even during challenging times, healing can happen; accordingly, we believe every individual has the right to excel, encounter setbacks, and heal at his or her own pace.

What matters most is how we react to achievements and setbacks. At The Campbell Center, we invite individuals into a safe environment as they uncover their potential, develop employment skills, and experience the social, recreational, political, educational, and cultural benefits of community life.

WHO WE SERVE:

The Campbell Center strives to serve marginalized populations through our extensive programming, events, and coalitions. These populations include:

  • Individuals living with mental, emotional, or psychiatric disabilities
  • Individuals living with substance addictions and abuse disorders
  • Individuals living with co-occurring or co-morbid disabilities (such as developmental or intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, or physical disabilities)
