OUR SERVICE APPROACH
We believe that an integrated approach to healthcare is the best service delivery approach to restoring psychological health and building resilient communities. Given this, we provide behavioral health service in church settings, barber shops, beauty salons and other locations where individuals visit regularly and feel the most comfortable.
History has shown that underserved, underinsured and disadvantaged individuals rarely seek out and utilize behavioral health services within medical or community settings. For example, a large percentage of African Americans who experience emotional distress seek support from non-medical or behavioral health resources such as the church, family and community groups.
By placing licensed behavioral health therapists in church settings and other settings, we are capable of reaching and treating underserved, underinsured and disadvantaged individuals who would probably never receive essential and vital behavioral health care.
We work together with spiritual leaders to help address individuals’ behavioral health and spiritual needs within the church setting. Offering services in the church setting has multiple benefits for individuals. While they seek and receive salvation, they can also seek and receive behavioral health counseling.
We believe that all humans should receive behavioral health counseling if needed and we make sure that they have access through our easily accessible and integrated approach.
