Helping Build Resilience Through Connection

Mental health and strength is an important component of resilience. Between the recent violent events, COVID-19, our long periods of social isolation, job losses, trauma and other challenges, many people need help navigating these difficult times.

Families First has expanded its Behavioral Health Department with clinicians available seven days a week, via secure video or telephone, to offer individuals support when they need it most. Families First accepts most insurance and offers sliding scale payment options to those who need financial assistance, thanks to our donors.

Families First’s professional clinicians offer non-judgmental, empathetic mental health care and support for adults, children, adolescents and families. We offer individual, family, couples, and group therapy, and our team members can help tailor a plan to fit your needs.
