To ease the stress of a difficult transition, we offer individual and family counseling to refugees who are adjusting to life in Colorado. Our therapists are able to help clients attain not only psychological stability, but recover from trauma and transition to healthy work, school, family relationships, and adaptation to a new culture.
The Refugee Mental Health Program at Jewish Family Service provides a holistic approach in providing accessible mental health services for underserved
refugees who have resettled in Colorado.
The program is staffed with highly skilled, culturally aware psychotherapists, who specialized in treating people from diverse backgrounds with
mental health needs. The psychotherapists work as a team, (link to a new Meet our Refugee Mental Health Therapists page or put “module” with faces and links to bios somewhere on this page) as well as in collaboration with other organizations in the community to provide wrap-around services for refugees, thus addressing their physical and emotional needs. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid.
The ultimate goal of the Refugee Mental Health Program is to assure the stability and the mental well-being of refugees. We offer outpatient counseling services in our office and in the community, psychiatric services for clients who require more in-depth medical attention, interpretation for refugees with no or limited English-language proficiency, and psycho-education outreach and advocacy.
If you are having a life-threatening emergency, or you need immediate assistance, please call 911.
