Just visited Turning Point. Wow. What a nice facility. Very accessible. I especially liked the poster in the waiting room that expresses very clearly how Turning Point works with clients who have mental illness. The staff is really friendly and caring.

Turning Point has a comforting staff, provides confidential services. The staff readily helps intervene in a crisis. The psycho-social rehab program is great!

I have been going to Turning Point for over 2 years and it's not just another organization. It's a tight-knit community that's like a family. They not only help with housing and education, but also have a psychosocial rehabilitation program that helps with socialization and recovery. The PSR community has a special comraderie of both clients and staff. The relationships I formed at Turning Point helped with both my recovery and improving my self-esteem. I will be forever grateful.

Turning Point is a warm, understanding organization for people with mental illness and substance abuse. It definitely helps people recover from their mental illness. The staff is understanding and helpful. Clients work together on activities and other projects and help each other in recovery.

In regards to Turning Point, I have been a client for approximately 5 years and I've benefitted particularly from the encouragement to become involved in activities and to some degree to become a part of the formation of a musical group and I believe this helped in my self-esteem and motivation. I feel that without the understanding of the staff at Turning Point in helping people to develop their skills at whatever capability they have, I would not have recovered to the extent that I have. I also feel that there was an emphasis on personal potential that may sometimes not be recognized by the client themselves, but is recognized by the staff. The staff encourages clients to fully develop these potentials. I feel the staff treats the clients as equals in their humanness.

Turning Point is an outstanding organization for people with mental illness and substance abuse issues. All staff are very accomodating and their doors are always open to discuss any issues you have. Staff is very professional and handles everything in a very confidential manner. From the CEO down to the maintenance man, they are always there to help and if they don't have the answers they will definitely find them for you. Staff is very personable and open to talking about any situation.
