In addition to the COVID19 pandemic, we are experiencing a mental health pandemic. Anxiety caused by the stress of uncertainty, grief related to the loss of routines, and depression caused by isolation, are real symptoms of the novel coronavirus that has caused so much disruption in 2020.
Foundations Health & Wholeness is a nonprofit mental health organization that’s been providing counseling for our community since 1965.
During the COVID19 pandemic, there is an increase in the number of clients who cannot afford to start or continue counseling because of job furloughs and layoffs. We are working on the front lines of this crisis to support our neighbors. We are here and serving our community. We’ve been using video therapy since April, and our clients are experiencing positive outcomes. Video therapy works, and it’s a safe way for children and adults to get the support they need. Clients can do video therapy from home or do in-office telehealth, where they are in a counseling office at our clinic, and their counselor is at home.
The latter option works well for people who don’t have enough privacy at home.
Foundations wants to make sure that money isn’t a barrier for clients to get help during this time. If you live in Brown County and do not have health insurance or have Medicaid/Badger Care, Foundations’ mental health counselors and resident training therapists are here for you.
If you are uninsured or under-insured, call Foundations’ compassionate team at 920-358-0788 to get started.
Foundations is grateful that this work is made possible by a generous grant from the Basic Needs Giving Partnership of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, which includes the U. S. Venture Fund for Basic Needs, the J. J. Keller Foundation and donors of the Community Foundation.
