Improving the health of our community — in both mind and body — is a commitment we’ve made at the Community Foundation. Thanks to a revolutionary partnership between SouthEast Lancaster Health Services and Catholic Charities, we are able to do both. With a grant from the Community Foundation, the organizations have employed a licensed psychologist at SouthEast’s Arch Street location. There, needy families who have been shutout of mental health services, often due to stigma or inadequate insurance, are referred on-site and immediately receive mental health consultation. The results have been dramatic — new patients are crossing barriers into mental health treatment every day and receiving care for issues like mood and anxiety disorders, depression and substance abuse.
