McClendon Center

All of our clients are diagnosed with severe mental illness — many represent our most disenfranchised community members. We provide comprehensive, wraparound services addressing primary care needs as well as psychosocial services. These include counseling, community support, housing assistance, art and movement therapy groups, and substance abuse counseling. At McClendon Center, our staff members strive to build mutual partnerships with clients and encourage them to take charge of their own recovery. There are no time limits on services being offered, but our aim is to work with clients so that they achieve their highest degree of mental health recovery and independence.

Our CSA is staffed by Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers, Team Leaders, a Team of Bachelors-level Community Support Specialists, Registered Nurses, and a number of part-time Psychiatrists, five of whom are third and fourth-year Psychiatry Residents from George Washington University. All the staff work together in Multi-disciplinary teams to Provide Mental Health Rehabilitation Services. We also operate a 24/7 on-call service to meet Clients’ needs after hours and on weekends.
