A note from our Executive Director
We’ve been living through some extraordinary times, extraordinary and tremendously stressful. Life has changed in so many ways over the last few years and with it so, too, have our outlooks on trauma, mental health, and finding coping skills.
The need for mental health professionals has never been greater. We are seeing across-the-board demands for services increase as children, adults, and families try to carve out healthy moments, behaviors, and lives. This means facilities like ours are also in need of hiring qualified outpatient mental health therapists.
In this issue, we look at two very important topics. The first is a piece of our plan to meet the increased need of our communities. In the last month, we have launched our Why Join Us: A recruitment guide for Outpatient Mental Health Therapists. The second piece in this issue focuses on the expertise and guidance therapists can offer to clients and the community as a whole. Michelle Clark and Stacey Kozak offer advice to parents on how to talk to their kids about anxieties they may be feeling regarding the war in Ukraine.
Our staff, board of directors, and clients thank you for your continued support of The Family Counseling Center. Our impacts and successes are directly connected to your donations, advocacy, and partnership. Thank you.

Therapists Offer Advice on Ukraine
We are now one month into the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the news, images, and stories have been overwhelming – for adults and children.
