    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.

    • 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.
