Richmont is a graduate institution aimed at providing a master’s level degrees in counseling, ministry, and psychological studies from a Christian perspective. Our belief is that our students should walk into their future careers with a foundation based on the values set before us by Christ. In the midst of these goals, we strive to provide a strong community, real-life training, and approachable educators equipped to bring life and experience into every setting.

The project will convert a conference room into a multipurpose room that can be used for various treatments (art therapy, trauma-informed yoga, etc.) that will increase Richmont Trauma Center's capacity to serve those suffering from trauma, mental illness, and/or substance abuse. Richmnont is committed to serving vulnerable individuals who otherwise couldn’t access needed mental health care.
$90 is the average cost of a counseling session from one of our trauma-informed counselors not working on a sliding scale. Your gift could be the difference in a person's continuing the treatment they need to achieve mental health and wellbeing.
