May - Mental Health Awareness Month

      Front from left are Travis Duncan, director of Greene Arc's mental health services; and Daniel Latanation, who participates in the programs; and back, Ryan McCollum, a Peer Specialist in the Peer Support Program.

    Greene Arc will hold two open houses this month to make people more aware of the services it has to offer the community. An open house will be held for:


    Social Rehabilitation Program
    11:00am to 1:00pm
    May 13th
    Suite 106 at Victoria Square, 95 E. High St., Waynesburg.

    Another Open house will be held for:


    The Drop-In Center
    11:00am to 1:00pm
    May 15th
    30 N. Washington St., Waynesburg.

    Though Greene Arc is primarily known for working with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, it has for several years also provided mental health recovery services. The Mental Health Programs are proving to be very successful. The mental health recovery programs are free to the consumers. However, the agency does receive funding for the services from the Greene County Human Services and Value Behavioral Health of Pennsylvania.

    Please join us for Open House. Learn how you or someone you know, who is a Greene County resident 18 and older with a mental health diagnosis, can benefit from our programs.
