Mary’s Center Inaugurates New Behavioral Health Center

Mary’s Center inaugurated a new, dedicated Behavioral Health Services center on November 14, 2017, during a Grand Opening ceremony attended by high-level DC government officials and members of the veteran community.

The new 3,205-square-foot center will allow Mary’s Center to hire additional therapists and increase our capacity to provide behavioral health services by almost 3,500 visits per year.

HyeSook Chung (DC Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services), Dr. Tanya Royster (Director, DC Department for Behavioral Health) and Ely Ross (Director, Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs) highlighted the important role the center will play in meeting the need for behavioral health services in the District of Columbia and improving the quality of life of DC residents. The Nam Knights Motorcycle Club Old Dominion Chapter also praised Mary’s Center’s outreach to veterans and presented a check for $2,000 during the event, to support our work with former servicemembers.

The programs offered at the center include Medication Assisted Treatment for heroin-opioid abuse, the School Based Mental Health Program, and services for veterans, active duty military and their families through the Health for Heroes initiative.

The center also has a dedicated Parent-Child Interactive Therapy (PCIT) Room, made possible by the Maximus Foundation. PCIT is an evidence-based therapy that enhances relationships between parents and children.

The Grand Opening included a community health fair with free behavioral health screenings, vision screenings and glasses, fresh farmers market produce and refreshments, thanks to the generosity of Centene, the Nam Knights, Bethesda Bagels and Honest Tea.
