Challenge

Children services are among the most time intensive and therefore costly mental health services to provide. Working with a child means devoting consultation time with parents, physicians, teachers and often other health care providers. Insurance does not cover the necessary multiple consultations. As insurance reimbursements have plummeted, hospitals, mental health centers and private practitioners by the score have ceased providing mental health services to children.

Solution

The project will provide services to children and their families that seek mental health services for their children but do not have the financial resources due to poverty, loss of employment, lack of insurance or high insurance deductibles/co-pays.

Long-Term Impact

Therapy will Instill a sense of competence in the child and promote his or her strengths, talents and feelings of self-worth. It will offset a child’s sense of failure, frustration, discouragement, social isolation, low self-esteem and depression.
