Bridging Communities and Counseling Services was established to address the mental health accessibility gap faced by marginalized communities, more specifically first and second-generation immigrants or refugees in mid-Michigan. We are committed to increasing the accessibility of bilingual and bicultural mental health care. Studies have shown that marginalized communities experience higher challenges accessing mental health care. Minorities are more likely to delay or fail to seek treatment, even though they are equally likely to report a mental health condition. Minorities are also more likely to terminate treatment prematurely. Immigrants and refugees face additional challenges that hinder their ability to engage in mental health care including language, cultural and religious barriers.

Mission 
We are building a bridge to close the mental health accessibility gap by providing professional, bilingual, and culturally competent mental health care.  


Vision 
We envision a community where everyone has access to mental health services free of barriers.
