Our Commitment to Providing Care for Our Community

Through the Bette D. Harris Family & Child Clinic, we train the next generation of therapists and provide therapy services to children, couples & individuals regardless of the ability to pay.

In light of the current health and economic circumstances, we are waiving all fees for clients of the Clinic. With the very real economic consequences of the pandemic on families, we do not want there to be any cost barrier that prevents clients from seeking the mental healthcare they need.

Give to The Family Institute

Our ability to conduct and disseminate relationship-based behavioral health research, provide a world-class education for the future leaders of behavioral healthcare and serve children, adults, couples and families regardless of ability to pay, is made possible, in part, by gifts and grants from individuals, families and foundations. Your contribution helps us positively impact families and our overall population's whole health. The Family Institute is an independent, not-for-profit organization.
