BIG HEART WELLNESS CENTER
a network of Support Services
enhancing the lives of community members
We believe that mental illness is a physical disease and that those who live with brain disorders deserve support and inclusion. At the Big Heart Wellness Center, we partner with support organizations such as NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) and Cultura y Bienestar to provide guests with information that sheds light on mental health diagnoses. We are committed to replacing stereotypes with helpful understanding, both for mental health consumers and their families, and to creating a community that includes consumers as a part of our diversity.
Together with our partner organizations, we offer workshops on mental illness as well as referrals to mental health providers and support groups for guests. We also provide space for ongoing education such as the Family to Family Class facilitated by NAMI Tri-Valley.
The rector of our partner organization, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, the Rev. Joyce Parry-Moore, has completed her doctoral studies in Pastoral Counseling and is available for occasional spiritual counseling sessions. Please call the church office if you would like to schedule a session.
