For more than 50 years, West Bergen Mental Healthcare has been here to help – providing quality counseling and therapy for troubled youngsters as well as hope for countless other individuals and families in our communities.
Today, the need has never been greater!
Recently, West Bergen has experienced a dramatic rise in the number of requests for treatment. Last year, we were able to help more than 5,000 individuals – many of whom struggle on a daily basis with a wide range of emotional problems. More than 95 percent of those served utilized our sliding fee scale and paid the amount they could afford for counseling.
Without your support, many will have to go without the treatment they so desperately need. Among them:
Sara, a teenager, who wore long sleeves all summer to
hide her self-inflicted injuries.
Fred, a recent widower, who was having great difficulty coping with the loss of his wife of 50 years.
Maddy, a fifth grader, who began to have violent outbursts both at school and at home.
I sincerely hope that you will consider making an end of year, tax deductible gift to this important community based organization. Your contribution can and does make a difference!'
