Consumer Operated Services Programs

Consumer-operated services programs (COSP) are peer-run service programs that are administratively controlled and operated by mental health consumers and emphasize self-help as their operational approach.

Drop-In Centers are a safe place where consumers can go to find recovery programs and services provided by their peers. They offer a wide variety of services including recovery focused support groups, life enhancement skills, goal setting, problem solving, computer and internet access as well as socialization with others in recovery. Anyone with a mental health diagnosis or who is or has experienced symptoms of a mental illness is welcome to participate in services. All services are self-directed and free of charge.
