November, 2022

We are pleased to announce Neil Gilbert, LCSW is the

MHAM Volunteer of the Month!

Neil is a volunteer with MHAM’s Pro Bono Counseling Project (PBCP). The PBCP connects

individuals, couples, and families who are uninsured, underinsured, and unable to afford

the cost of mental health treatment with a volunteer, licensed, and insured mental health

clinician. Volunteer clinicians provide short term counseling at no cost to the client.

For Neil, participating as a volunteer clinician cements his value of taking care of the

community. Neil has a BA from George Washington University, his MA in Counseling

Psychology from the University of Notre Dame, as well as an MSW from Western Michigan

University. Neil began his clinical work in 1976, did community development work from

1983-1993, and returned to clinical work in 1993. He is in private practice at Neil Gilbert

Counseling & Healing. Neil has additional training and specializes in Family Systems

Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programing, and Healing Touch.

Neil is married to Marianne. His son lives in Indianapolis and daughter in Asheville, NC.

He has 4 grandsons in North Carolina, one new baby granddaughter in Indianapolis. Neil

enjoys practicing reading Torah at his synagogue, taking winter vacations in Nice, France,

and taking care of an old house built in 1850.

Thank you, Neil, for your commitment to improving access to mental health care in
