Confidential interpretation provided free of charge.
Lives are rebuilt by providing evidenced based mental health treatment with a focus on cultural awareness and sensitivity. Hope is restored through healing wounds of trauma and torture so clients can move forward to productive, peaceful lives.
Therapists are specially trained to evaluate the invisible wounds of life threatening persecution that immigrates faced before coming to the USA or while residing here. Immigration evaluations are conducted according to the type of immigration case being filed. All assessments and evaluations are conducted in the peaceful environment of Beyond 90’s clinical home.
Psychiatric Support Services
Accompanying refugee clients to the psychiatrist helps maintain a continuum of care leading to overall emotional health. Clients are provided psychoeducation on the importance of medication and compliance, medication management, assistance overcoming barriers to outpatient psychiatric care, support during discharge planning if hospitalized and long term follow-up care to help break the cycle of repeated hospital admissions.
Behavioral Case Management
Behavioral Case Managers are part of the multi-disciplinary team approach utilized to provide wrap around care from case open to close. Services include psychoeducation, barrier reduction, specialized referrals, and community engagement support.
Barriers to mental health can be a preexisting condition with the refugee and immigrant populations leading to a lack of access to services. Barriers such as limited knowledge, fear, and uncertainty potentially keep refugees unhealthy and unsuccessfully integrated into communities. Steps to reduce barriers such as training clients to ride public transportation, exposure to pharmacies to refill medications or helping clients learn to communicate and keep calendars on their smart phones brings down the walls to isolation and increases mental well being.
Help Them Heal
Refugee therapy is funded through a grant from the Department of Health but only covers a limited number of refugees per month and NO funding for immigrants.
You can help us provide services to these individuals.
