Our Mission is Clear

The Consortium is a network of psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, social workers, and educational professionals and auxiliary members. Auxiliary members represent corporate, artistic and entrepreneurial areas who are forging ahead to offer a range of services for the many populations, including those who have been dramatically impacted by COVID-19.

Reports that our community faces issues even at greater need to cope with depression, anxiety, abuse, alcohol, drug dependence, domestic violence, grief and loss at a rate that may not receive the attention it deserves during this time.
