A Community Health Initiative
The Chaldean Community Foundation is funded by the Michigan Department of Community Health to provide much needed mental health services to Iraqi refugees and community members. The foundation has partnered with St. John Providence Eastwood Clinics to deliver the best treatment available to refugees, who have suffered untold trauma and stress from the war in Iraq and the subsequent religious persecution of minorities. Many have languished for years in countries like Jordan and Syria, unable to work or send their children to school, before getting permission to come to the United States.
The program is open to anyone who is experiencing difficulties adjusting to personal life challenges such as the loss of a home, divorce and other misfortunes. Individuals without insurance or a means to pay can obtain mental health services including therapy, psychiatric physician visits and medication. Those with insurance are assessed fees based on their plan requirements. Translation and transportation services are available.
