One of the incredible characteristics of all people is that we are unique. That is the basis of using creativity in mental health services. Because the needs of no two people (or teams, families, companies, etc.) are the same, it is important that the services they receive are adapted to meet those individual needs. That is what we strive for at Bowline.

The bowline knot is one of the most well known and widely utilized knots in the world. It can function as a reliable knot with a versatile array of abilities such as keeping a boat secure, climbing a new rock face, or performing a rescue. Likewise, through creativity and customization, Bowline Mental Health Services can aid in: maintaining health and preventing mental injuries, developing new skills and using them to explore life more fully, and recovering or healing from mental health challenges.
