COUNSELING AND CRISIS INTERVENTION

 

 

Counseling services are needed for a myriad of reasons so it is hard to pinpoint exact services.  In general, counseling for people with disabilities can be helpful for persons with emotional disorders or those coping with stresses in their lives.  Most social service agencies provide in-house counseling services or contract out to counselors.  If you need assistance finding appropriate services, contacting a referral source or PACT,Inc. is a good first step.  We have listed some providers and individual counselors that have experience with people with disabilities.  Other counseling services are available and you should consult one of the mentioned referral sources or directories for additional listings.
