Breaking Barriers in Mental Health
Breaking Barriers in Mental Health is a United Way of Horry County program that came after our Community Needs Assessment showed the growing number of individuals who needed access to mental health resources but could not afford them. Ensuring individuals have access to mental healthcare can improve lives and communities.
Thanks to a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant COVID-19 (CDBG-CV), UWHC is working with The Center for Counseling and Wellness to provide free, consistent, on-site, out-patient, mental health, and substance use disorder counseling services to the homeless, uninsured, underinsured, low to moderate-income, and rural population of Horry County.
The locations for counseling services will be provided to clients of the following organizations: Friendship Medical Clinic, J. Reuben Long Detention Center, New Directions Men’s Shelter and Women’s Shelter, North Strand Housing Shelter, Project Lighthouse @ Sea Haven, Sea Haven, and The Center for Counseling and Wellness offices in Loris, North Myrtle Beach, and Surfside.
If you need counseling services through Breaking Barriers and are not a client of the organizations above, please contact The Center for Counseling & Wellness at 843.663.0770. For more resources on counseling and mental health services, call 2-1-1 or find 211 resources online.
