History

Our legacy of hope.

From our rather small beginnings in 1959, as a largely volunteer-operated mental health clinic, Central Wyoming Counseling Center (Central) has grown to offer a wide variety of specialized programs and services. With Central’s team of mental health and substance abuse treatment professionals, nurses, physicians, psychiatrists, and support staff, the center operates three major programs consisting of Outpatient Services, Residential Services, and Recovery Support Services.

Each year, Central has grown and adapted to serve our clients. In 1959, from an empty classroom at the high school, Central served 25 people. In 2015, Central helped over 4,000 people at our 75,000 sq/ft. campus and through our many external programs.

Central has responded to community needs by implementing an Open Access intake process where clients who call or walk in, can be seen in the same day. Enhancing this process is our collaborative documentation where clients assist in developing their own treatment plans.

Central’s dedication to our neighbors is also evident in our staff of over 140 professionals. It is emphasized through the continuing education with 400+ courses provided to all our staff. It is demonstrated by our ability to measure and track processes and successes. Central’s commitment to bringing the best to Wyoming is highlighted by a modern electronic medical record system. And, finally, Wyoming’s dedication to Central is evidenced by our revitalized Community Advisory Council; our passionate Board of Directors; and continuing strong community support.

  • Mental Health Awareness Month Gallery Reception

    12:51
    05/14/2018

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the Central Wyoming Counseling Center (CWCC) is celebrating by hosting an art gallery in its lobby May 14 to May 18 featuring pieces created by CWCC clients and staff.
    Mental Health Awareness Month emphasizes that health is holistic; we’re treated by a medical doctor when we have physical ailments, so naturally we need to treat mental illnesses the same way. This initiative also aims to combat the negative stigmas surrounding mental health, and CWCC is highlighting the positives with this first-ever art gallery.
    “This is going to showcase the incredible things that our clients and staff are capable of. It’s really unfortunate that people with mental illnesses often deal with negative stigma, but we’re showing people that our clients have hobbies and interests and talents, just like everyone else,” CWCC Director of Recovery Services Tabatha Madrigal said.
    Any piece of artwork created by CWCC staff or clients is eligible for submission, while residential clients are making submissions specially for this event. Madrigal explained that mental health patients often face a duality in how clients see their own illness versus how the rest of the world perceives it. In response, each client created two-sided masks with one side each representing both of these experiences. These masks will be hung from the ceiling so each side is visible.
    To honor the work and recognize Mental Health Awareness Month, CWCC is hosting a free reception Monday, May 14 beginning at 5:00 p.m. Food and beverages will be served, and the gallery will be open to the public for viewings. In addition to the reception, the lobby will be open for the community to browse the pieces through May 18 during regular business hours.
