ONEIDA, N.Y. — Liberty Resources on Wednesday formally opened Pathways Wellness Center in Oneida.
The center, located at 148 Main St. in Oneida, will be available “based on community need” for adults 18 years or older who are struggling with a mental-health condition, Liberty Resources said in a news release.
Liberty Resources is a human-services agency headquartered at 1045 James St. in Syracuse.
Liberty Resources’ Pathways program is a recovery center that the New York State Office of Mental Health has designated, the nonprofit said.
A group of peers and volunteers “who have experienced their own life challenges” operate the center. Peers help individuals with services, acquiring benefits, developing “natural supports” and social relationships, and achieving their life goals.
Self-referrals and walk-ins are welcome, Liberty Resources said. The center will also accept referrals from community providers, family members, or friends.
“We are excited to launch this new program to support residents of Madison County along their pathways to wellness and recovery,” Janelle Powell, director of the Liberty Resources Pathways Wellness Center, said in the release. “Peer connections are vital for maintaining our own wellness. By sharing our personal experiences, we are able to inspire hope and empower individuals to improve their quality of life.”
