Culturally competent mental health services to address varying needs
Sound mental health provides a critical foundation from which our neighbors can build their lives around. Mental health and stability can be compromised as a result of trauma, poverty, chronic stress and other tremendous challenges posed by cultural adjustment, homelessness or exposure to violence. NVFS provides culturally competent, language-specific mental health services for all ages in various settings to ensure neighbors from all backgrounds have access to the support they need. Services are provided at NVFS offices and integrated into home, school and community settings, and include individual, family and group counseling, and mental health treatment and evaluation. These services are tailored to meet the developmental, cultural, language and relational needs of the client and their family system.
“I wanted to thank you for everything. I can’t tell you how much the kids are finally happy. It was the first night for all of us to sleep. We are sending you big hugs and telling you thank you for everything you’ve done for us.”
