Refugee Mental Health Services

To ease the stress of a difficult transition, we offer individual and family counseling to refugees and immigrants who are adjusting to life in a foreign country. Our therapists are able to help clients attain not only psychological stability, but physical and personal stability in terms of work, school, family relationships, and adaptation to a new culture.

The Refugee Mental Health Program at Jewish Family Service provides a holistic approach in providing accessible, affordable mental health services for underserved and/or uninsured refugees who have resettled in Colorado.

The program is staffed with highly skilled, culturally aware psychotherapists, who specialized in treating people from diverse backgrounds with mental health needs. The psychotherapists work as a team, as well as in collaboration with other organizations in the community to provide wrap-around services for refugees, thus addressing their physical and emotional needs. Services are available on an affordable sliding-fee scale or at no cost, depending on individual circumstances. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid.

The ultimate goal of the Refugee Mental Health Program is to assure the stability and the mental well-being of refugees.
  • Outpatient Counseling Services: We provide individual, family, couples, and group psychotherapy in an office setting and in the community in order to accommodate our clients.
  • Outpatient Psychiatric Services: We provide psychiatric services to our refugee clients that require more in-depth medical attention.
  • Language Services: We provide interpretation to refugees with no or limited English-language proficiency.
  • Advocacy: We provide psycho-education outreach in order to remove the barriers to health care and to break the stigma of mental health for our clients. We address their symptoms, concerns, problems with medication, and mediate between providers and patient with the goal to help them become advocates for their own health care.
