Brooklyn Center Organization Offers Free Mental Health Services
Lee Carlson Center Provides Services at No Cost
The Lee Carlson Center for Mental Health & Wellbeing is offering free mental health services to families and children. The provider is now offering virtual classes for families at no cost.
Mental health Practitioner Victoria Shelander says mental health needs have skyrocketed – from anxiety, to having trouble in social situations, she says more people have been reaching out to the center for help.
“The pandemic has just had a huge effect on everyone. Being a part from people for so long has had a lot of effects especially in growing minds,” Shelander said.
Once a week, the virtual program focuses on different topics like handling stress and daily routines. Shelander says the program has become a guide for parents needing the extra support.
“A lot of parents just feel like they don’t have enough tools, and they don’t really know what to do, I mean there is no handbook on parenting.”
Shelander hopes the program will make mental health resources easily accessible for families who may not always know where to turn for help.
“Parenting is a really difficult job and a lot of parents just love to have those little tips that they can use daily,” Shelander said.
The virtual program is offered once a week on Thursdays. To learn more about the program, click here.
