The Center is a non-profit mental health organization that for more than three decades has been a resource for low-income and uninsured adults in Lane County who are in need of mental health services but have no other means of receiving assistance.
Services are offered on a sliding scale based on income. Some 100 professional volunteers donate nearly 4,000 hours of counseling to clients during an average year.
Among offerings of the CCC are anger management classes, workshops and training on parenting skills, group sessions and classes on managing emotions, short- and long-term counseling for individual adults, and information on and referral to additional mental health and parenting resources.The typical person receiving services at the Center is a single parent supporting two children who is unemployed or underemployed, has an average income of less than $600 per month, and reports having themselves been abused as a child (97 percent of clients).
Conference leader Andrea Isaacs has worked in personal and spiritual development for 30 years using the Enneagram model of understanding human interaction. Taking its name from a nine-pointed geometric figure, the approach focuses on the strengths, weaknesses, connections and needs of nine personality archetypes. Building on that foundation, Isaacs has incorporated body awareness and simple exercises to create the EnneaMotion system for increasing emotional intelligence.

Winter Conference - The Psychology of Money, Power and Relationships
The January Mental Health Conference, The Psychology of Money and Professional Relationships, was a successful day of expanding knowledge around attitudes, values and beliefs about money.
Forty-five attendees spent the day at Lane Community College’s Downtown Campus’ light and bright meeting room. Lively and interactive discussions, role-plays and a panel presentation made this conference a true and active learning experience. Many thanks to our sponsor, MCS Family Wealth Advisors, and the Mental Health Conference Committee: MB Barlow, Kim Morton, Laurel Anderson, Rick Friedrich, Jon Davies, Michael Stalker and Melissa Thomas.
