Over the past year, we have initiated and further developed several programs to reach more people. These include:
- Happiness Class which has helped hundreds of people adjust their attitudes, behavioral patterns, and channel their thoughts and energy into more productive actions.
- School-based program which helps children deal with disorders that affect their ability to learn.
- Community Wellness program which has helped thousands of individuals develop the skills needed to improve their sense of overall well-being.

The Center is a vital asset to our community by providing mental health services that might not otherwise exist in Aurora and the surrounding communities.
