Outpatient Therapy – Elizabeth Upjohn Community Healing Centers

As part of Community Healing Centers’ adult outpatient services, those interested in mental health counseling are assessed to identify needs and treatment plans are developed to create a personalized recovery program. We serve the cities of Kalamazoo + Portage and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to assist individuals in managing their symptoms and dealing with everyday stressors through basic life-skills training; peer support; relapse prevention planning; and individual, couple, and family sessions.
