WHAT IS BUILDING HOPE’S MENTAL HEALTH THERAPY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM?
The community of Summit County is dealing with unprecedented economic constraints and emotional stress among our young people and adults as a result of the recent crisis. Our Mental Health Scholarship program was created to help people experiencing a mental health struggle who cannot afford to pay for therapy. Qualifying individuals can receive up to 12 therapy sessions with participating providers. Those who do not qualify are assisted in using other financial support such as insurance, employee assistance programs, and government programs as appropriate. Since creating the Insurance Provider Program in 2020, Building Hope has assisted providers as they navigate the challenging landscape of insurance billing and payments.
“I hope you know how much I appreciate Building Hope for the work you are doing. I have benefited tremendously from your support. Ravi has been so truly kind to me. I am so grateful for Building Hope and the support you have provided me and my community”
