Building Healthier Communities, Supporting Mental Wellness
Welcome to Community 43!
Community 43 is a fully licensed behavioral health outpatient clinic located in the heart of central Phoenix near 16th street and Indian School Rd. We serve those in the community suffering with mental illness, primarily (but not limited to) major depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia. Community 43 offers a wide range of daily activities and services to help build community, strengthen social connectedness, learn life skills, and develop meaningful relationships!
A working community is at the heart of our model. By working together, members regain confidence, make friends, learn new skills, and make progress towards achieving their employment and educational goals. This opportunity to be a part of a successful working community is restorative and builds dignity and self-esteem.
Members work in one of seven areas within Community 43 including art, culinary, GED, horticulture, technology, business and office, and wellness. Each area serves a unique purpose and is essential to running the community.
Community 43 is based on the Fountain House Model which has been replicated in more than 300 locations in 30 countries and 32 states and currently serves more than 100,000 people with mental illness worldwide.
Thanks to the Stead family’s vision we are able to bring this model to Arizona and share it with the community.
Core Community 43 values:
- • Focus on people with the most serious forms of mental illness
- • Inclusivity – people with serious mental illness are treated with dignity and related to with respect at every stage of their participation in the community system of care
- • Strength-based – everyone – no matter what their diagnosis – has something to contribute
- • The Community 43 System of Care is a comprehensive approach that combines medical, psychiatric and social interventions.
