Column: Compass To Expand Mental Health Therapy Program

We must have been very good here at Compass last year, because we received a GREAT holiday gift that we want to share! We are excited to announce that our mental health therapy program is expanding in 2019, thanks to a grant from The CenterLink – Johnson Family Foundation Mental Health Initiative. 

This new funding means we will be adding a second mental health therapist to our staff as we begin the new year. The best part is, the grant allows us to continue to serve our community on a no fee/sliding scale fee basis. 

Affordable mental health care is hard to find, but for our Spanish speaking neighbors it’s even more difficult, and a significant number of our Spanish speaking clients have expressed a need for therapy. 

Being a community center in South Florida without the staff to serve Spanish speaking clients just feels wrong to us at Compass. To meet this specific and urgent need, we are seeking a bilingual therapist who will be able to treat our Spanish speaking community members. 

Doubling the number of therapists on staff will mean that we can accommodate more clients overall, too. We know that our community faces higher rates of social isolation, trauma, and suicides than the general public, and we are determined to treat as many people as we can, to help them live their very best lives. This includes youth in crisis, those struggling with substance abuse, or seeking help in their relationships, or with gender dysphoria, or anything else at all that is holding you back from being your healthiest self.  

If you are a licensed or pre-licensure mental health professional who is fluent in Spanish looking for a new opportunity doing rewarding work in a fun environment, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
