Mental Health Care Access Project Heathy Carolinians and the Mental Health Association in Orange County, with funding from OPC LME, are developing a program to address the gap in care for individuals who fall between those who qualify for publicly funded services and the privately insured. The service will match people in need of counseling who would be otherwise unable to access it with counselors who agree to work on a pro bono basis with one client per year. A secondary service will be information and referral for those who do not meet eligibility criteria for the pro bono program. The program will serve individuals with low-to-moderate incomes who are ordinarily mentally healthy but have experienced, or are experiencing, a stressful event or circumstance, and who lack access to counseling due to financial barriers. A clinician at the Mental Health Association will provide clinical assessments and match those who qualify for the program with participating clinicians. Contact Mark Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-942-8083 for more information.
