Acerca del Proyecto Pro Bono

La meta del proyecto de asesoramiento gratuito es aumentar el acceso al asesoramiento en salud mental para personas, parejas, o familias que no tienen seguro social o que no pueden pagar.

Este asesoramiento es de corto plazo (hasta 12 sesiones en un periódo de 3 o 6 meses) con un proveedor profesional y licenciado de salud mental sin costo para el cliente. Los terapeutas voluntarios deben tener una licencia activa en Indiana y cobertura de mala praxis.

Este programa está diseñado para ayudarle a enfrentar

  • Problemas de Relaciones
  • Estrés en la crianza de los hijos y otros estresores de la vida
  • Transiciones
  • Problemas de la escuela o el trabajo
  • Problemas de la adaptación
  • Duelo/Pérdida
  • Ansiedad o depresión, leve a moderada
Cualificaciones del Programa

Terapia de corto plazo es un gran servicio para personas, parejas, y familias con problemas agudos.

Al recibir su solicitud la revisaremos para asegurarnos de que es un buen candidato para este proyecto. Tenemos en cuenta su situación laboral y de seguro, así como su estrés financiero y el tipo de problema que espera tratar con un terapeuta.

Mientras dando su tiempo el terapeuta, se espera que el cliente haga todo lo posible por acudir a las citas programadas. El terapeuta puede elegir terminar el servicio tras faltar a varias citas. Si el terapeuta asignado o solicitante determina que las necesidades del cliente no serán bien satisfechas por el terapeuta, el PBCP ayudará a conectar el cliente con otro terapeuta o servicio.

La siguiente lista son problemas que son mejor atendidas a través de otros proveedores y organizaciones en la comunidad. Estaremos encantados de ayudar a conectar a los solicitantes con otros servicios comunitarios apropiados.

  • Abuso activo de drogas o alcohol.
  • Actualmente en una relación abusivo o violento.
  • Se necesita documentos por una discapacidad.
  • Se necesita pruebas psicológicas.
  • Busca atención psiquiátrica.
  • Enfermedad mental grave.
  • Necesita asesoramiento/consejería por orden judicial.
  • Niños menores de 18 años a menos que participen en terapia familiar.
  • Solicitantes que reciben asesoramiento de otra fuente.
  • Para los solicitantes que pueden pagar una escala móvil, vamos a referir fuera de nuestra lista de proveedores de la comunidad que aceptan escala móvil.
  • Los solicitantes que son elegibles para el seguro pero no lo reciben serán examinados para determinar que apoyo/servicio se necesita.

Preguntas Frecuentes

¿Qué ocurre cuando cumplo los requisitos del programa?

Una vez que se ha examinado a un solicitante y se ha determinado que es apto para el PBCP, el MHAM lo pone en contacto con un terapeuta voluntario. Una vez que el terapeuta acepta al solicitante, éste sigue sus protocolos habituales. El PBCP solicitará un control mensual (en línea) para saber si se sigue prestando el servicio. Una vez finalizado el servicio, el PBCP solicitará un feedback sobre cómo ha ido el servicio, incluyendo los progresos realizados.

Si se le considera apto para este programa, no tiene ningún coste adicional.
