WASHINGTON, PA – Healing Bridges, a behavioral health nonprofit in Washington County, hosted a free open house event on Wednesday, April 26th, to connect with fellow behavioral health supporters and emphasize its impact on local community members. The nonprofit currently serves about 1,800 clients residing within Washington County and other neighboring areas, helping individuals with its counseling, medication management and mobile case management services.

The event took place at the nonprofit’s site location at 378 W. Chestnut St. in Washington last Wednesday, and event-goers were encouraged to take tours of the facility, meet Healing Bridges staff and board members, participate in raffles, collect educational resource items and more.

“I am proud to be a three-year volunteer board member here at Healing Bridges and to witness the great work that these people do behind the scenes, said Gary Weinstein, Healing Bridges board president and former Washington Health Systems president. “We are very fortunate to have a community-based nonprofit provider of mental health and intellectual disability services in Washington County that sees everyone regardless of type of insurance. Our team of physicians, nurses, therapists, case managers and supports coordinators build bridges to and with our clients and their families to help them heal and access the resources they need to reach their goals.”

As people took tours of the renovated office spaces, they learned more about Healing Bridges service offerings, listened to the true story of a Healing Bridges client, took home free resources and swag from on-site pharmacy Genoa and healthcare advocacy nonprofit Quality Insights and mingled with prominent community activists.

“We were very pleased to update are fellow community members, providers and supporters about the progress we have been making with our services,” said Natalie Ross, Healing Bridges chief executive officer. “It is imperative that we not only highlight out brave clients who tackle their behavioral and developmental struggles every day, but also our dedicated staff who work directly with our clients to rise above their obstacles as well. This open house event allowed us to create a welcoming presence for all those looking for services and for all those wanting to learn about what we stand for.”
