Stand up for mental health. Come enjoy a healthy and fun experience while supporting New Center Community Services’ (NCCS) effort to purchase a Mobile Crisis Unit (MCU). The MCU will allow New Center to serve as an emergency mental health provider to our community’s young adults (aged 18-24) who are struggling with depression, symptoms of trauma, and mental illness. Young adults are 60% more likely to have depression than people aged 50 or older. New Center’s MCU will help these vulnerable young people reduce the risk of self-destructive behaviors, manage their mental illness and develop into productive community citizens.
