Counseling Washington, DC

One thing Washington, D.C. does not lack is recreational locations. The East Potomac Park at the intersection of Hains Point and Ohio Drive South, offers picnic locations, a miniature golf course, a public outdoor pool, a playground, and much more. This site has many trees that provide shade, as well as places to enjoy the sun.1 It is suitable for children as well as teenagers, making it a perfect family outing location. If you wish to enjoy the great outdoors, the Thompson Boat Center on Rock Creek Parkway rents out canoes and kayaks. Take an exciting cruise on the water with all of your favorite family members. For a more traditional view of the city, one may wish to visit the Capitol, White House, Smithsonian, U.S. Supreme Court, Georgetown, and national monuments. At each attraction you are sure to take away a surplus of history as well as a better appreciation for the country.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Washington

Residents of Washington, D.C. are relatively young, well educated, and make a relatively good income.2 Many citizens are young married couples, and the city boasts an overall divorce rate that is very low.3 Due to this, many Washington residents report having relatively good mental health. In addition, when they do require mental health services, access is relatively easy for most people.

The Metropolitan Police Department, in association with a number of government and private organizations, operates the Domestic Violence Intake Center (DVIC), which provides services for the victims of abuse. As a central processing point for services, DVIC conducts intake evaluations, offers counseling services, and provides legal assistance. In 2011, DVIC served over 5,400 people, many of whom were children between the ages of 13 and 17. Information about DVIC and other related resources can be obtained by calling 202-727-7137.4

Family Services and Assistance Programs

The Children, Youth, and Family Services Division of the Washington, D.C. Department of Behavioral Health is responsible for oversight of family-related mental health services in the city. The development of intervention programs, emergency services, and school-based mental health programs improve access to services for many children and families. A family-centered approach seeks to build skills and knowledge of each member of the family unit to improve family functioning and increase the likelihood of successful mental health treatment. Call 202-673-7440 for additional information about the wide-range of programs offered by the Department of Behavioral Health.5
