“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it Became a Butterfly.” -Proverb
Kiesler Wellness Center, formerly known as the Kiesler House, is a peer-driven community support program for adults impacted by mental illness.

Our goal is to reduce and prevent psychiatric and hospital admissions of Itasca county residents. We provide a campus approach to mental health wellness and overall well-being. Our innovative strength-based recovery approach is one of personal choice and inclusion that offers opportunities for education and personal growth. These program choices and membership opportunities have been developed through the experiences of its members and staff working side by side.

Recovery Is knowing who you are and using your strengths to become who you were meant to be.
