Samaritan: a Lifeline to Emotional, Relational, and Spiritual Wellness
Breaking Down the Barriers to Mental Healthcare
The pandemic exacerbated the existing mental health crisis in Pennsylvania and across the nation. Yet, more than half of Americans suffering with mental health problems do not get treatment. The main obstacles to mental healthcare are lack of resources, inaccessible services, and a widespread shortage of services. Samaritan provides Western Pennsylvanians solutions to these obstacles by offering financial aid, providing both in-person and teletherapy, and expanding into underserved areas.
Expanding to Meet Needs
Nationally accredited by the Solihten Institute in Denver, Colorado, Samaritan opened its doors in 1982 with a single therapist on staff. We’ve since grown into a 22-employee center with 11 satellites in six counties. We also provide online therapy for any Pennsylvania resident. We counsel over 1,000 men, women, and children annually and train, coach, and educate hundreds more both online and in-person.
