Services include mental health counseling, psychological testing and psychiatric and medication evaluations.  Since emotional and educational problems in children often stem from one or more difficulties with sensory integration, pediatric occupational therapy and educational advocacy services are also available.

 

The Center for Wellbeing-Centro Bienestar, Inc., was envisioned by three Licensed Clinical Social Workers who found over the course of 4 years that the number of requests for service they received from the uninsured had increased by 12%.  They also discovered that, according to census figures, over 42,000 people, or 14% of the population of Lower Fairfield County, were totally without any medical insurance.  More disturbing was that in one part of their service area, Norwalk it was 22%.  As social workers they knew that mental health is intricately linked to physical health and to life experience and that treatment of mental health, as a stand-alone issue is inadequate at best.

 

The Center for Wellbeing-Centro Bienestar, Inc., is an entirely volunteer organization, consisting on an unpaid Board of Directors, Chief Operating Officer, an Assistant, and two others researching fundraising opportunities.  Those providing mental health services are independent mental health professionals who are licensed in the State of Connecticut and who have agreed to receive a fee below the current market rate.  The same is true for the occupational therapist.
