Millcreek Counseling and Mental Health Advocacy Partnership
The Millcreek Mental Health and Advocacy Partnership’s long-term vision is a community where all individuals have equal access to quality mental health services. Our mission is therefore to ensure all members of the local community, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic-status, or education, have access to mental health resources. Furthermore, to ensure that all mental health practitioners have access to training and continuing education so that they are able to provide quality mental health services to the local community. To enact long-term community improvement we work to increase awareness of these challenges facing vulnerable populations, including the working poor.
Programs and Services
The Millcreek Counseling and Mental Health Advocacy Partnership is located at 1738 West 8th Street and consists of a four member board of directors and six mental health counselors. Our organization was founded in 2017 when a group of local mental health professionals discovered an urgent need for mental health counseling to serve members of the working poor in our local community. Currently we provide mental health counseling to children, adults, and families who do not have the ability to pay for treatment. In many cases, the individuals who we serve are employed full time, yet their health insurance plan has a deductible they are not able to meet.
