Oak House is located at the Mental Health Association in Fayette County. It is a place where people with mental health issues can socialize and participate in recreational activities like playing pool, games and cards, bingo, arts and crafts projects, watch movies or television and help plan activities for the group. In addition to the many daily activities, members help organize and plan trips in our community to attend special events throughout the year (ballgames, Fayette County Fair, local festivals, shopping trips, and other low cost or free events). You can meet new friends, learn new things, and feel good about yourself.
Oak House is open from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Monday through Saturday.
In order to foster independence to individuals attending the Drop In Center, MHA staff will assist the individuals and/or the providers with registration for FACT Bus Transportation to and from the center.
