You may also go to your nearest emergency room.

What Is AHIF's Mental Health Counseling Program?
In speaking with both clients and caregivers, AHIF recognized the tremendous need that both of these unique populations had for mental health counseling services. In the majority of cases, these services were either not available, or not affordable, in their community. In 2019, AHIF began a partnership with Katie Bee Counseling to provide vouchers for free counseling to those who needed it. As soon as we implemented this program, we recognized immediately that the demand far exceeded the capacity we had created.
In 2020, we brought Katie Beaugez on staff part-time to help address this need, and in 2021 Katie shifted to full-time employment with AHIF. Together with several other certified AHIF staff, and the upcoming arrival of counseling interns, AHIF continues to expand this service offering to clients and caregivers struggling with the often extreme challenges and emotions of living with a TBI, as well as caring for someone who is living with a TBI.
