TMHCA’s program is really good. I like it when I’m taught information about voting rights. I like to have access to other services and TMHCA helps coordinate care for me.

The staff treat you like you are intelligent and with dignity and respect. I like the various subjects designed to meet my program needs. I like that the programs treat the whole health of the person.
It is exhilarating and informative. It reiterates what I learned academically. The superfluous classes like music therapy, art therapy and health classes are excellent.
