We enjoy collaborating with other mental health agencies as well as schools, churches, and other organizations to provide mental health services to this community and beyond. If our agency cannot help you, or we believe you will be better served by another agency, we provide referrals. We are aware and humbled that our services are only a small part of a larger community, and the only way to make a positive impact is to work together.
