WE OFFER HOLISTIC HEALING SERVICES
If we think about the way that we see violence, we understand that those who are most deeply impacted may be labeled as harm-doers themselves. Success for our survivors looks like a comprehensive and collaborative cultural approach to ending generational cycles of violence. We aim to provide healing that not only supports our clients in the now but systematically participates in dismantling some of the root causes of violence. By reimagining social support groups, interventions, individualized therapy, advocacy assistance, and collaborations with local agencies; we are able to serve some of the most vulnerable victims in the most appropriate and effective ways.
CASE MANAGEMENT AND ADVOCACY
Our advocates take a holistic approach to case management and advocacy here at We All Rise. There are very few barriers we aren't willing to walk through with our clients if they want to venture that way. We also make it a priority to collaborate across agencies to ensure our clients are aware of all services available to them.
Mental health support is an essential part of holistic healing, but looks very different for everyone. Some people need group support , individualized clinical support, or personalized time with their advocate. For those that qualify for services, we are able to offer multiple approaches to individual and family healing.
We invite our clients to view therapy as a 45-minute block of time solely dedicated to themselves, as well as their healing, whether they are coming in as an individual, a couple, or as a family unit.
This time is devoted to you, and only you.
We also recognize that some individuals may not feel comfortable with clinical mental health, due to the historical limitations and lack of access to equitable health care. We also observe that when African Americans are granted access to mental health services it is often mandated, coerced, or transactional. Those that are labeled harm-doers have also been harmed themselves, and are no less deserving of holistic healing.
The We All Rise approach to clinical mental health therapy goes beyond traditional beliefs, to acknowledge the historical erasure of black trauma, the realities of racial battle fatigue, and the truths that are possible when the clinician does the work that allows for centering the importance of the honest and irrefutable Black Experience.
Therapy has been shown to have benefits for individuals who undertake it. Therapy often leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress and resolutions to specific problems.
Our mental health staff is able to provide sessions to individuals (adolescents, teens, and adults), couples, and families. If you are looking to receive individualized mental health services, contact your case manager today. Never been to our organization? Check out our intake hours.
