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).

The 2014 Fall Mental Health Conference was a great success. 65 attendees participated in the conference held at the Downtown Athletic Center and led by Shoshana Kerewsky Psy.D.
As clinicians, our ethics mean the difference between success and failure, both personally and for our clients. Shoshana focused on professionalism and collaboration and invited those in attendance to increase our knowledge and assurance in the area of ethics. In addition, we were given ideas that could be immediately put into practice.
Many thanks to the mental health conference committee for organizing another great CCC conference. Committee members are: Laurel Anderson, MB Barlow, Rick Friedrich, Mark Oldham, Jon Davies, Patricia Hasbach and Melissa Thomas.
