We strive to be a resource for Pasco residents who need assistance with mental health access, funding and/or education. We are working to reduce the burden that compromised mental health places on employers, community organizations and the local government.
We are here to help. We provide:
voucher programs for counseling, mental health medications and testing
community education and guest speakers
We provide up to $360 - paid directly to providers - for individuals to receive mental health evaluation, counseling, therapy, medication or transportation to appointments before the need becomes critical.
We routinely host professional conferences offering the latest information and tools along with CEs (continuing education credits) for mental health professionals. We have expanded community presence to notify the public of our programs and educate individuals and families about warning signs and how to get help. We also publish and distribute informational booklets and resource guides.
We are actively involved in community meetings to assist in creating a system of care through collaboration, thus improving quality of life for individuals and families.
