Who Are We?
IHI started from the shared Visions of our founders Melissa Farrar and Darren Blanchard. Melissa and Darren have both individually been working within our community advocating for mental and emotional health awareness. In early 2021 they decided to combine their efforts and IHI was born. Since its beginnings, IHI has been fortunate enough to build a great board of directors to help build on the many great ideas and projects in the works for our community.
We are a group of like-minded individuals who share a common goal. We understand the gaps in the health care system and the need for added support and programming. Our goal is to create a safe space for people battling emotional and mental health issues to come together, create bonds, find meaningful opportunities and heal as a collective. We believe in the restorative power of work, social connection, and community to support recovery.
What we are trying to do:
We want to create a clubhouse-style community to support our brothers and sisters in need. Bringing like-minded people together to create a safe, comfortable environment. One that offers hope, respect, love, and opportunities for personal growth and development. A place for everyone to heal, learn and thrive.
