Our current programs include the award winning Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies – no-cost home based therapy for uninsured low income women with perinatal depression; Positive Aging – on-site counseling, support groups, and referral services to seniors; Trauma Informed School Program – in-school support for students experiencing mental health problems; Integrated Behavioral Health / Primary Care – on-site therapy at MobileMed clinics for low-income adults.

Community based program therapists work remotely to serve Montgomery County’s diverse underserved population. The positions are rewarding and will give you experience in delivering culturally competent mental health care.
