This support includes navigating insurance issues, addressing issues of childcare and transportation, helping to schedule the initial appointment, reminder calls, and follow-up after the scheduled intake. Research staff will also check-in monthly to see if the patients require any additional support to remain in mental health treatment. Up to 8 therapy sessions are covered regardless of ability to pay.
