Accessible Mental Health Services in a Church-Based Setting
Church-Based Mental Health Services (CBMHS) provides low- and no-cost professional mental health counseling to individuals at six church locations in central New Jersey, and serves as a a resource for pastors and church staff at these locations. CBMHS allows those who would delay or go without important treatment due to lack of funds or misinformation about available resources to receive professional, compassionate care and education in a setting where they feel comfortable asking for help.
This service is not appropriate for anyone in crisis, but is designed to assess strengths and needs, identify appropriate referrals, and when appropriate provide short-term individual psychotherapy.
How Can I Get Help?
If you or someone you know is in need of low cost mental health services, call 732-867-8647 and ask for a telephone screening. A licensed professional counselor will be available by phone 10am-5pm, Monday through Friday for screening. All calls will be returned within 24 hours during normal business hours. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
