Accordingly, our initial program will take action to support professional therapy and help eliminate the obstacles to receiving it. We have talked with families, local mental health organizations, and professionals who have confirmed there are many young people who want or need therapy but face financial obstacles. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of mental health issues, insurance coverage can be either lacking or limited. Most insurance providers are just not covering mental health illnesses as seamlessly and timely as they do physical illnesses. There are enough challenges to taking the step to seek therapy and financial reasons should not be one of them.
The fund is now available and already helping people in our community.
