At the Russian Community Association of Massachusetts, we are dedicated to supporting our clients in all their needs, including behavioral health. Therefore, we are partnering with the Behavioral Health Department of the Lynn Community Health Center. As a result of the partnership, interns from the Global Mental Health program come to the center twice a week to led workshops and discussion groups in the following areas:
The importance of Behavioral Health
The various options that clients may have to sustain good behavioral health
How to schedule appointments with behavioral health professionals
The eventual goal of this cooperation is to transition intern-led information workshops to support groups and individual-needs appointments for clients. This initiative will provide clients with resources they may need to alleviate the stress and anxiety they may feel upon transitioning to a new country as well as to address issues related to their lives prior to their arrival in the United States.
The program will be open to all clients of the New American Center.
