DONATE TO BAPTI

The BAPTI Mental Health Equity Fund (MHEF) was established in 2018 by the BAPTI Board of Directors to allow our therapists to provide subsidized services to low-income clients who would otherwise not be able to afford high-quality psychotherapy services. All donations to the MHEF are used to enable BAPTI clinicians to provide limited-term psychotherapy while maintaining our ability to pay our Associates for their time. We encourage members of the community who want to increase access to mental health services to contribute to this fund to support our work.

Office Safety Precautions in Effect During the Pandemic

 

Although most of therapy sessions are currently offered online, our office is taking the following precautions to minimize the risk for our clients who are being seen in person and help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Office seating in the waiting room and in therapy rooms has been arranged for appropriate physical distancing.
  • Our therapists wear masks.
  • Our therapists maintain safe distancing.
  • Restroom soap dispensers are maintained and everyone is encouraged to wash their hands.
  • Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol is available in the therapy rooms and the waiting room.
  • We ask all patients to wait in their cars or outside until no earlier than 5 minutes before their appointment times.
  • Areas that are commonly touched are thoroughly sanitized after each use.
  • Physical contact is not permitted.
  • Tissues and trash bins are easily accessed. Trash is disposed of on a daily basis.
  • We do our best to stagger appointment times so all clients don’t arrive on the hour.
