Individuals with disabilities and their family members are underserved in mental health spaces. It’s hard to go to a provider who does not understand the impact of disability. Having a counselor with a deep understanding of disability issues is vital for progress. This partnership helps create an understanding of disability to set and reach goals consistent with one’s ideal image and reach a point of self-acceptance. Families get a different level of support, and counseling can be focused on empowerment to encourage people to get more involved in their community and help in the long run to embrace disability, creating an overall better quality of life.
