Behavioral Health Program

Behavioral Health encompasses our mental health and substance use services.

We provide culturally appropriate services that are person-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed and rooted in a harm reduction model.

Mental health services include diagnostic assessments, education, individual therapy to address concerns that are identified during the intake and assessment process, and crisis intervention services. 

Access to additional services and supports are also available to individuals and families through advocacy and care coordination. Due to provider availability, certain types of appointments are only available at specific locations. Contact us to learn more.  

Substance use services focus on all levels of community ties to substance use, including prevention work, assessment, and support to those who are at risk of, affected by, and who currently use substances. 

We seek to ensure access to services and care for individuals who are uninsured, on Medicaid or a Prepaid Medical Assistance Plan (PMAP) and are traditionally underserved.

Who We Serve

We believe in a community-driven, multifaceted approach to working with those impacted by substance use, including prevention, assessment, and support. We provide services to anyone 10 years old and above, and seek to ensure access to care for those who are uninsured and underserved, as well as those on Medicaid or a Prepaid Medical Assistance Plan (PMAP). We are proud to be a trusted provider of choice for Latine immigrants and Somali refugees and their families.
