Mental Health America brings services to Beaufort County
Washington Daily News - 8/19/2017
A new service for mental health patients is branching out to help residents of Beaufort County.
Mental Health America is a national nonprofit dedicated to providing resources and support to patients transitioning from inpatient to outpatient services. The organization's eastern North Carolina branch, formerly known as Pitt Collaborative on Mental Health Services & Substance Abuse, is expanding its services to this area.
"Basically what we do is we work with other companies, kind of as a liaison, and we refer individuals to services that are already in that community and/or services that they may be able to use in different surrounding areas," said Asia Boyd, peer navigator at newly named Mental Health America of Eastern Carolina. "We're always proactive in the community trying to find different resources and different things that can help any individual."
