The Thelma McMillen Center is providing and managing it's Resource Center as a free community service. In this first phase of its implementation, the Online Resource Center it is not intended as a means for private practitioners to market their individual practices, but rather should serve as a central resource where South Bay residents can easily access information on the numerous mental health and alcohol and drug recovery events and support groups available in the South Bay. Though the Center will not be vetting posted events for accuracy or helpfulness, nor will it assume any responsibility for the services provided, it does reserve the right to not post an event or group, for any reason. Additionally, area alcohol and drug treatment programs will not be included in this first phase of implementation.
