We believe in making mental healthcare accessible to everyone, especially those who face the most significant barriers. To uphold this commitment, we specifically reserve a portion of our program spots for clients with Medicaid. All other insurance types are grouped together for the remaining available spots. Our approach is designed to balance the need to provide care to those with the least access while serving the broader community within our resource constraints.
