The Pro Bono Counseling Project’s volunteer clinicians are the lifeblood of the organization and the driving force behind its efforts. We would like to sincerely thank the nearly two thousand mental health professionals who have given their time since our inception in 1991. It is through their exceptional generosity that PBCP can continue to help Marylanders with limited resources receive quality mental health care.

What are the Benefits?

When you enroll as a volunteer with the Pro Bono Counseling Project, you are part of a movement to improve access to mental health care in Maryland. Our network of over 800 participating clinicians donates over 9,000 hours of their time each year to improve the lives of Marylanders in need of counseling.
