Therapy Washington DC,
When one thinks of Washington, D.C. of course the Capital, Smithsonian, and monuments galore come to mind, but the city offers much more than what one might expect. One family-friendly attraction is the National Zoo where admission is completely free. The National Museum of Natural History serves as a highly educational, yet entertaining, attraction for the entire family to enjoy. Children and teenagers can jump out of their seats at IMAX films, exhibits, as well as hand-on activities at nearby attractions. If you are in the mood for performances of all types including musical, dancing, poetry, and more, be sure to visit the Wolf Trap Farm Park; not only is this location gorgeous, but all shows are appropriate for children of all ages. The city is also home to one of the many Six Flags across the country; there is something for children, teenagers, and adults with numerous rides. There are over 100 schools in the city alone including private, public, and technical options including Woodrow Wilson High, Winston Elementary, and Holy Trinity.
Mental Health in Washington
Although Washington, D.C. is home to only 650,000 people - nearly all of which are White or African-American1 - as the seat of our nation's government, it is representative of the many peoples and cultures that comprise the United States. With a population that is the second youngest among states, large numbers of married couples with children, and low divorce rates, the city has many good social characteristics.2
However, Washington, D.C. struggles to provide adequate services to citizens who need mental health attention. Nearly 30,000 children and adults in D.C. live with a serious mental illness, but only 42 percent of adults in the city receive the services they need. As a result, the city's criminal justice system handles a large number of criminal cases involving children and adults whose mental health needs have gone unmet.3
The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. offers a number of behavioral health services to adults who live with a mental illness. Board certified psychiatrists perform patient evaluations and prescribe and administer medications. Licensed counselors oversee individual and group counseling for people dealing with grief, anger and emotional trauma. There is also a Community Support Services division, which oversees community outreach and education. Their educational services focus on helping clients develop healthy coping mechanisms, relapse prevention strategies and finding housing and employment. If you are in need of behavioral health services, the Catholic Charities can be contacted at 202-635-5900.4
George Washington University is one of the nation's premiere colleges and offers a comprehensive program in counselor education for those who seek to work in the field of mental health. The program includes multiple post-master's degree options and is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Graduates from the program are eligible for licensure in the city through the Board of Professional Counseling.5
