We are local individuals, groups and organizations interested in improving the overall health of our community.
Although our individual reasons for participating in SUCCESS are no doubt varied, we can all agree our community is in great need of organized, visible and accessible Emotional Support Services
What is a Emotional Support Animal?
-An emotional support animal or support animal, is a companion animal that a medical professional says provides some benefit for a person disabled by a mental health condition or emotional disorder.
-People who qualify for emotional support animals have verifiable psychological disabilities that substantially interfere with major life activities, such as anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, or panic attacks.
-An emotional support animal differs from a service animal. Service animals are trained to perform specific tasks while emotional support animals receive no specific training. Any animal that provides support, well-being, comfort, or aid, to an individual through companionship, non-judgmental positive regard, and affection may be regarded as an emotional support animal.
