Mental & Behavioral Health

“Mental health is a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realize their abilities, learn well and work well, and contribute to their community. It is an integral component of health and well-being that underpins our individual and collective abilities to make decisions, build relationships and shape the world we live in. Mental health is a basic human right. And it is crucial to personal, community and socio-economic development.”

 – World Health Organization

The Pallottine Foundation of Huntington recognizes that many Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia residents struggle with serious mental health conditions including major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and anxiety. The current substance use disorder challenges have placed an additional burden on the mental health providers working daily to provide treatment in our community. Our Foundation supports projects that increase access to mental health services, reduce stigma and barriers, and meet the needs of vulnerable populations through a variety of approaches.

Mental and behavioral health support includes, but is not limited to:

  • Mental and behavioral health for adults, children, and families
  • Outpatient counseling programs
  • Residential treatment center programs
  • School-based services and therapy
  • Suicide prevention
  • Telehealth and mobile mental health services
