Wellness City Programs

Wellness City is founded on the recovery principles of hope, personal choice, empowerment, development of an environment of wellness and independence, and the encouragement of spirituality and community enriched by contribution. Wellness City is a community made up of individuals embarking on or expanding their recovery journey. A staff of well-trained peers who have experienced their own recovery challenges and successes will share what they have learned and will work alongside practitioners and educators who are committed to the founding principles of the recovery community. The citizens of Wellness City who are beginning their recovery journey will learn to identify personal strengths and challenges and will develop personalized plans that will incorporate life experiences, newly learned skills and goals and dreams for the future. Each citizen will partner with a recovery coach who understands the challenges and acutualize their hopes and dreams, working together to bring out everyone’s best. They will catch each other when someone starts to fall, sharing what’s been learned so all can benefit. Strong and trusting relationships will grow and be nurtured between Wellness City citizens. These relationships are key ingredients that will allow the City to operate effectively and successfully.

Personal Wellness Program: Recovery Coaching and Planning. This element is designed to support each citizen in the development and activation of their “Personal Wellness Program”. To accomplish this, each citizen will work in partnership witha Recovery Coach to complete a self-assessment that identifies strengths and abilities, plus any challenges that could interfere with recovery and wellness. Together they will develop a plan that mobilizes their strengths to deal with and overcome the challenges that are interfering with recovery and wellness. The City Hall meeting will be a forum for encouraging and celebrating sucess as citizens accomplish personal wellness and recovery goals.

Recovery Learning Opportunities.This element is a Learning Center that provides a range of creative classes and activies that promote wellness and recovery based on Nine Dimensions of Wellness: Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Occupational, Home and Community Living, Financial and Recreation/Leisure. Citizens can choose what they want and add their choices to their “Personal Wellness Program”. The educational opportunities of the Learning Center will be developed and enhanced through feedback in the City Hall meetings. Citizens chan choose from core classes that support them in developing their own wellness and recovery tools. To see more about our classes, click here.

Safe Haven Program

In partnership with the County of Riverside University Health Systems – Behavioral Health Homeless Housing Opportunity Providing Empowerment (HHOPE) programs, we provide our Safe Haven Services:

Permanent Housing

Our program offers residential support for up to 25 individuals who meet the criteria of chronic homelessness and also have mental health challenges. Individuals are referred into housing by the Full Service Partnership (FSP) and will receive their mental health services and support from FSP as well. Our team of Recovery Partners provide support of daily needs and development of life skills such as; meal planning / preparation, housekeeping, hygiene, communication skills and development in the area of being a good neighbor.

Welcome Center

Our Welcome Center provides peer to peer engagement and support, linkages to community resources and support with enrollment for mental health services. We also support the daily needs of guests including: food, showers, laundry facilities and a place to get out of the elements and engage in recovery conversations with others.

We understand that it is a significant life change to go from being chronically homeless to being comfortable living indoors.  We continue to build relationships with those in the welcome center and hold the hope that they will be inspired to take the next step of their journey towards housing when the time is right for them.

Art Works

Art Works Gallery is located in the beautiful and historic Mission Inn District of Riverside, CA. Since 2008, Art Works has opened its doors to people from all walks of life, whose lives have been touched by mental health challenges and recovery. We offer creative arts classes and workshops free of cost, supplies included. Our vision is reach people, wherever they are in their recovery process, and to assist them in the transformative process that creative expression facilitates; just as it did in our lives.

Art Works Gallery offers classes five days per week in all areas of the creative arts. The Art Works calendar changes each month and has included the following classes: drawing, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, fiber arts, jewelry, mixed media, dance, drama, music, creative writing, poetry, paper arts, mandala making, glass works and sculpture. Students are able to consign their art work at the gallery to earn income as well. In addition, Art Works offers a unique opportunity for local community artists to share their talents with students at After Works, an art social event that takes place each Friday evening. By reaching out and inviting in our greater community, we find that the wall of stigma begins to crumble and the bridge of hope and compassion builds. Exhibitions at Art Works Gallery are rotated every two months. As a recovery-oriented program, each of Art Works Gallery’s exhibitions is centered around a recovery theme, such as what art has taught a person about him or herself, the power of personal history, and how a person’s recovery can shine through their art pieces.

In addition to the Art Works Gallery exhibit space, we also partner with local venues to display artwork, such as our permanent off-site exhibition space at the Riverside Downtown Metro Building which houses the MHSA Administration offices. This allows for a greater number of people to enjoy the beautiful art created in our program.

Art Works programs and projects are not confined solely to Downtown Riverside. Because Riverside County is a large and far-reaching county, Art Works has a mobile project called Recovery In Motion. This mobile project travels to underserved locations throughout Riverside County where individuals would not typically have the opportunity to take advantage of weekly Art Works classes. These community-based classes are 4-8 sessions in length and combine arts instruction with recovery principles. In addition, students at Recovery In Motion classes will receive a take-away (such as an art kit or performance) upon completion of the 4-8 week class session.

Art Works’ programs and projects are funded by Riverside County Dept. of Mental Health, the Riverside Arts Council, and other generous donors.

To learn more about classes, workshops, exhibitions, and opportunities to get involved, please contact us through email at or call us at (951) 683-1279.

We are always looking for instructors, patrons and others who support our mission.

Peer Employment Training

RI International believes that every person who wants to work can succeed in developing a meaningful career of their choice. Peers in the workforce help transform the mental health services delivery system with their unique skills and “been there” experience. RI International trains and seeks to employ peers to work as recovery educators, recovery coaches, in-home crisis workers and much more.

Those who wish to become Peer Support Specialists begin with an intensive 75-hour Peer Employment Training (PET) program that teaches people who have received services in the mental health system the skills and techniques of peer support. Students completing the class and passing the competency tests may seek employment providing recovery education and peer support in various mental health programs. PET includes training in recovery and peer support principles, communications skills, cultural diversity, ethics and boundaries, substance abuse, trauma and resilience, conflict resolution and much more. It is a competency-based curriculum; students will demonstrate their proficiency in the skills they learn.

In partnership with the Riverside University Health Systems – Behavioral Health, RI International at Riverside provides six Peer Employment Training classes a year, two in each region of Riverside County.

For information on additional opportunities to attend Peer Employment Training, or to host a training in your area, please contact RI Consulting (a DBA for Recovery Opportunity Center).
