The Pro Bono Counseling Project is celebrating 25 years working with licensed mental health professionals throughout Maryland who have taken more than 10,500 Maryland families, couples and individuals of all ages into their private practices. We started because the federal government was going to impose a national health care policy that did not take the necessities of mental health care into account. Much has changed during the past 25 years, and much hasn't. We may have parity now with somatic care; and the Affordable Care Act has opened many doors; but in 2016, we are still facing little and less access to mental health care.
We are still lacking in the following areas: 1) Spanish-speaking clinicians; 2) Sponsorships to provide more free workshops for therapists; and 3) a part-time staff member to travel throughout Maryland in rural and urban communities, talking with seniors, adolescents, recent immigrants to dispel the stigma and show how easy it is to access care.
Until these concerns are resolved, it will always be our mission to provide Marylanders with limited resources access to mental health care providers in the community along with other necessary supportive services.
