Stephen F. Austin Community Health Network, dba Community Health Network (CHN) is pleased to announce the award of a $110,000 grant from The United Way Brazoria County to fund the Behavioral Health program which consists of counseling, psychiatric care and substance use treatment to individuals of Brazoria County. The program will provide face to face care, substance use disorder group therapy, and telehealth services to extend the reach of psychiatry services to patients at distant clinics as part of an integrated behavioral health program. These measures will enable the Behavioral Health program to serve significantly larger numbers of individuals in critical ways. CHN will use the United Way of Brazoria County funds to pay for behavioral health staffing costs and in-kind expenses for patients who cannot afford to pay their substance use disorder group therapy office visit copays. CHN greatly appreciates the United Way of Brazoria County and the Community Impact Committee volunteers, for funding the Behavioral Health Program to support and aid patients with substance abuse and mental health disorders to improve their quality of life.
