Connections: Introducing the Community Counseling Circle

How can we make mental health services accessible to everyone? It's a question leaders at the Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalitionhave been considering. They've launched a pilot program called Community Counseling Circle, and it's aimed at providing counseling to underserved populations.

We talk about the new program and about the value of culturally competent care. Our guests:

  • Reverend Phyllis Jackson, RN, founder and executive director of the Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalition
  • Melany Silas, Ph.D., professor at Monroe Community College, and board member for the Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalition
