Your Support Makes a Difference

At CooperRiis, we heal. We are a place where individuals are not defined by their psychiatric diagnosis but by their talents, personality, and potential When you donate to CooperRiis. You support our person-centered recovery model with the belief that mental health recovery is much more than just healing the mind. Diet, exercise, education on self-esteem, hope, and social and living skills all play a part. This model is the foundation we sought to create with CooperRiis.

As a private, nonprofit healing center, donations are essential to maintain an attractive, clean, and welcoming living environment, along with a working farm, woodshop, and art building. Your gift to CooperRiis will make a difference in an overwhelmed family’s life and give hope to residents who are tackling complex mental health challenges.

CooperRiis Healing Community is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

CooperRiis Healing Community is pleased to announce Ride Above Mental Illness, apeer-to-peer fundraising event.  Inspired by Western North Carolina resident Jeremiah Reiner, CooperRiis will be raising awareness of adult mental health challenges and CooperRiis’ response to helping adults needing residential mental health healing.   

Jeremiah is riding the 2022 Tour Divide, an “Ultra-Endurance Bike-Packing Event”. The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route covers 2,745 miles from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico. Jeremiah will begin his journey on June 10th and ride until the end of July.

“The work you all are doing at CooperRiis is TRULY life-changing. I can hardly believe I have my son back and my family intact. After years of denial and many rock bottoms, our son finally asked for help. When he did, CooperRiis was there. My son was treated with respect and dignity. He is now working full time, managing meds, staying sober and healthy, and working toward independence. We are forever indebted to CooperRiis (Heaven on Earth).”
