Mental Health Association Seeks Bilingual Therapist

As a result of COVID-19 stressors, trauma is rapidly increasing and the need for counseling services is higher than ever. The current waitlist for counseling appointments is 6 to 8 months. The 2-1-1 emergency hotline operated by the Frederick County Mental Health Association (MHA) expressed one of their highest needs is a Spanish speaking counselor. The Ausherman Family Foundation provided a General Grant in the amount of $50,000 to hire a bilingual licensed therapist to help victims address traumatic experiences through counseling services. This therapist will serve the uninsured or those who fall at the low end of Mental Health Association’s sliding fee scale.

Mental Health Association will partner with fellow local human service providers to help serve clients impacted by trauma including Heartly House and Spanish Speaking Community of Maryland.
