Our Mission

To support the recovery of youth and young adults with mental illness in Sumter, Kershaw and Lee counties.

Our Mission

Our Vision

Our goal is for young adults to receive responsive age, developmentally appropriate, youth-driven, culturally competent, and highly individualized care, which will lead to a full and productive life.

ROI will reach out to young adults with emerging mental health conditions who fail to engage in treatment, and by doing so, will reduce the risk for many conditions that could result in academic underachievement, unemployment, and a loss of social supports.

Your support helps us help others!
