The impending storm can make all of us a little nervous, especially if you have experienced a previous disaster. We are here to help. Thanks to The Louisiana Disaster Recovery Alliance, we have funding to assist with mental health services for individuals and families who have experienced or been affected by a disaster. Counseling fees are determined on an income based sliding fee scale. Individuals and families will receive a minimum of three sessions, but could be eligible for as many as nine sessions. There is a $10 fee to reserve your appointment. Please call the Director of Operations, Toni Bailey at the office (337) 981-2180 with any questions or to reserve your appointment. Spots and funding is limited and will be served on a first come, first served basis, so call today!
