About

We are the Neutral Ground Collective. We are dedicated to helping communities and individuals to lead mentally healthy lives. We believe in order to achieve ideal health, we must care for the whole person: mind, body and spirit.

 

Where does the term Neutral Ground originate?

"Neutral ground, the New Orleans toponym used for street medians, is a phrase that originated in Western Louisiana. This area near the Sabine River became known as a free state. After the arrival of Anglo-Americans in the mid 1800s the term continued to resonate as a concept between Anglo and Creoles "for negotiating disputes and contested spaces".
