Kiesler Wellness Center Vision:
Is to reduce personal loss due to ineffective treatment or untreated mental illness symptoms and behaviors. It is our goal to provide person-centered support for community members impacted by mental illness through an open door campus approach to accessing information, resources and services. Community members are adults and families who are seeking support for themselves or for their loved ones to improve mental health wellbeing.

Kiesler House is a place where mental illness is supported and accepted.
