CooperRiis Healing Community serves adults with complex mental health issues—typical diagnoses include schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety or depression. Some residents experience borderline personality disorder and many have a history of addiction. Our goal is to help residents recover their strengths and discover new ways of coping through milieu therapy, group and individual therapy, psychopharmacology, nutrition counseling, exercise coaching, and neuro-enhancement. Residents begin their journey on one of two campuses—our 94-acre farm campus in Mill Spring, NC or our urban campus in vibrant Asheville, NC. The support and programming are very similar between the two campuses. After an average stay of 6 to 9 months, residents typically benefit from our community program, where they have the opportunity to choose their next path. The purpose of our community program is to support the resident in sustaining their improved level of functioning and building resilience by putting into daily practice the tools and skills they gained while at our primary campuses. Our community is a safe and affirming environment where individuals are given the best of mental health science within a healing milieu that helps them move from despair to their dream for more active, fulfilling, and hopeful lives. We support our LGBTQ, gender non-conforming, non-binary and/or genderqueer community members by engaging in practices that raise gender awareness for all in order to promote a safe and supportive space for all of our community members.
