Balanced Heart Healing Center - Veterans and Military Families ProgramOffers mental health services for veterans and military families, covering sexual assault, PTSD, depression, relationship problems and other issues. Provides unconditional care, regardless of insurance, discharge status, current health or ability to pay. For a variety of reasons, many veterans prefer to receive healthcare services from civilian providers, and women who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma may not want to be cared for in facilities where they share support groups with men. By increasing civilian awareness of the realities surrounding military life and engaging individuals as well as BHHC partner organizations in support of military women, it is our intention to create a community of care around military families in southwestern Pennsylvania such that they are as well supported by the Pittsburgh community as other service members and veterans are by their active duty bases. The “Veterans and Military Families” program initially will comprise:
  • Mental health counseling for women veterans and military families,
  • Coaching services for women veterans and military families,
  • Financial planning services,
  • Referrals to complementary and alternative care providers,
  • Referrals to other organizations offering services not available at BHHC,
  • Listening events (including both military and civilian women) to hear and identify the most pressing needs and valuable resources of our women veterans, as we expand our capacity to serve them.

CenClear Outpatient Therapy - Parent Child Interactive TherapyPrograms that offer PCIT, a behavior management program that helps parents learn new ways to eliminate destructive behaviors in young children such as physical aggression, swearing, defiance, and disrespect to adults. PCIT places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship by changing parent-child interaction patterns. It combines one-on-one coaching for parents by a trained PCIT therapist using structured child-parent play activities. The therapist uses a two-way mirror to watch the family interact and provides continual, real-time feedback, directions and encouragement through a hearing-aid-size radio receiver worn by the parent. Parents are first taught how to give praise for positive behavior and, when the parent and child have mastered the skills and the relationship has improved, move to the second phase of the process where discipline is introduced for negative behaviors.ClearfieldCenClear Outpatient TherapyCenClear
