The Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago (MHAGC) has released details of its complimentary care program for people suffering from a range of mental disorders.

The announcement details a range of benefits for individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders, and trauma. The MHAGC team brings expertise across a range of therapeutic approaches including person-centered counseling.

The incidence of adults suffering from adverse mental health issues is also increasing and with 24.7% reporting an unmet need for treatment. A lack of adequate health insurance is a common precipitating factor in this decreasing uptake of frontline support services.

The new service is available remotely and all sessions take place via a safe and secure connection using the HIPAA compliant ZOOM service . The team of highly trained therapists offers complete confidentiality alongside a compassionate and empathic approach to complex emotional problems.

Bridge2Help(TM) is designed to provide support for anyone going through a difficult time in their life. It also offers parents, caregivers, education professionals, and any individuals needing help a way to get the support they need for themselves or for someone they care about.
