BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- An alternative mental health facility that helps nearly 1000 clients a year is shutting down next month.
Sweetser says without more help from the state it can no longer continue funding the Learning and Recovery Center.
Sweetser runs the center with funding help from the state. While that state funding has remained flat,Sweetser's costs have risen significantly. With no additional money coming from the state the center is being shut down.
Kelli Magaw used to be a client, now she's a volunteer.
That's what this place is all about. People who have dealt with their own mental health issues, helping people now looking for help with theirs.
"I have this place to thank, I have a ton of people to thank. It's this place it's like if it hadn't existed I don't know where I would've gone", said Magaw.
