Mental Health in Las Vegas
As a provider of Mental Health Services, we find it very hard to stay in business. I will start this by stating that providers need a raise. Even more we need like everyone does affordable space to conduct business in. Have you ever wondered why most mental health providers are on the east side of Las Vegas?
As a for profit company that supports a family of five due to inflation it is making it hard to stay in business. We compete against non-profits that get government help. They can afford to offer insurance benefits to employees because their rent is subsidized by grants. Discounts on rent and everything else that comes with being a non-profit. We are not against non-profits we started one. www.wheatleydeforgefoundation.org
This is my attempt at advocating for better mental healthcare in America and most important our community in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am asking you to advocate for us. Call your elected officials and ask them to see us, hear us, and do something for small Mental Health businesses like ours that support our small family of five.
