GHS -  Everyone Benefits from Mental Hea

Who Benefits from Mental Health? 


Our whole community benefits from services that address substance abuse, criminal behavior, homelessness, desperation, and other social problems.​

GHS provides a wellness model that can begin at any stage of life: childhood, young adulthood, or adulthood, or later in life.

Because mental health is important throughout life.​

Perhaps you have struggled for years without any support or understanding of your symptoms or your options for a healthier life. GHS wants to change that for the better.

We will never turn you away empty-handed. We will provide referrals and a road-map to health even if our services aren’t the exact fit for you.
