TERMS OF USE: Please read and "Agree"


      The Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care is frequently contacted by people seeking recovery-oriented services for their own or a family member’s mental health challenge. EXCELLENCE is an international Community Foundation raising private philanthropic dollars for innovative research and programs to improve mental health outcomes. We are not a referral agency. We do believe that an important service we can provide is to connect people in need to providers who profess a recovery and wellness-based philosophy and practice. With that goal in mind, we offer this provider directory from which people can locate providers who describe their practices as being focused on mental health recovery and wellness rather than chronicity and illness.

Search our directory to find a recovery-oriented provider in your area. Before you continue, you must agree to the following terms:
