Catholic Family Services Celebrates One Year of Medicaid Mental Health Care

Posted:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Catholic Family and Child Services celebrated one year of providing mental health care to the community's Medicaid population on Wednesday.

Program directors said they've assessed more than 800 clients since they started offering the services in October 2007.

Organizers say they have made a commitment to groups of people who weren't getting help before.

"The main classes being children, elderly folks, and people with disabilites", says clinical director, Linda Robb. "I think making an outreach to to those populations has really made a difference".

For people who can't make an office visit, the program has counselors available to speak with people in their home.
