#SpotlightOnCLT: Sanctuary Counseling Group

Our #SpotlightOnCLT Mental Health Month story focuses today on Sanctuary Counseling Group.  We spoke with Kate Welsh to learn more about how Sanctuary Counseling Group is making an impact on mental well being in Charlotte.
 
What would you like for the community to know about the challenges your organization is trying to solve?
 
"Of the 452,000 adults in North Carolina who did not receive needed mental health care, 44.8% did not because of cost."
 
Could you describe for our community how Sanctuary Counseling Group supports mental well being?
 
There is a serious need in our communities to address mental health needs. Sanctuary does this by serving populations that historically have been overlooked and underserved due to many reasons including financial constraints.
