Among Friends is a Community Mental Health Program for adults aged 18-65.  Focused on fun and mental health promotion, “The Culture of Recovery” guides our daily programs. Among Friends invites participants to be fully engaged with the tremendous possibilities life has to offer.

In addition to our general program categories of social, recreation and wellness activities, members of the Among Friends Program work on the development of personal goals and breaking the debilitating pattern of isolation.  Our eclectic and multi-talented staff team also reaches out to support members at difficult times and to provide advocacy if needed.

There are no membership fees or costs associated with program participation.

Our Community Needs Your Support

Every little bit helps. You may not think you make much of a difference, but in the words of those who use LAMP CHC’s services:

"Everyday we come to LAMP CHC, life gets a little easier to get back on track. We would have just given up if it wasn’t for them."
