As a behavioral health facility, we believe the awareness of mental health is key. With May being mental health awareness month, we tried an outreach program with the community to learn more about what Exult as a family can do for the North Dallas mental health community.
One of the services we offered during May, and plan to continue offering, is our free mental health screenings. This is where anyone can come into our facilities to meet with a mental health professional and learn if they need our services. From this, we have seen people who walked in from the streets and set up a screening the same day. Many individuals do not notice in themselves that their mental health is taking a beating until told by others. Not only are you getting an outsider’s opinion, but also the aid of mental health professionals who know and understand the signs.
Exult has also been working with the community to have a greater program in outreach programs accessible to everyone. Recently, Alex Medrano and Sabrina Bhargava went to the McKinney Kiwanis Club and presented a presentation in mental health awareness. They were able to interact with some of the community and address growing issues. From the meeting, they learned the difficulties that parents have been facing and the need for a more parent involved program.
Through and through, Exult Healthcare’s month of May was dedicated to raising awareness. The biggest outcome is the constant awareness that needs to be done in North Dallas on behalf of mental health. Dr. B has made it a goal to grow with the community and offer whatever Exult Healthcare can do the individuals around us.
