Join us on our mission to create lasting social change in our local community and beyond.
A 2022 study by Dr. J. Tse revealed that four out of 10 Americans could not access mental health care when they needed it, and 42% of American adults who needed care in the previous four months did not receive it because of costs and other barriers. Additionally, many people start experiencing signs indicating mental health problems during adolescence or even childhood and do not have support to access care. "One major precursor of mental health disorders is trauma. Many people keep their trauma a secret for a long time. It is often a great relief when they finally find care." - Dr. J. Tse, Senior Medical Director at Fountain House (Stats from Access to Care Survey NCMW's Harris Poll, May 11, 2022)
