The Issue

The Community Foundation asserted that approximately 65,000 low-income residents of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties were estimated to suffer from a mental illness or depression and need mental health-related services in 2013, however only an alarming 69% (44,708) received public mental health treatment services.

This is where Imtasik Family Counseling Services Inc. (IFCS) comes into play. Since its inception in 2014, IFCS has been offering an array of comprehensive faith-based therapeutic services targeting both low-income families and individuals. A departure from the conventional reliance on psychotropic medication to treat many reversible behavioral and social problems, which ultimately results in dependence. IFCS incorporates in its service delivery – anger management cognitive behavioral therapy, individual counseling, couples counseling, family counseling, group counseling, family workshops and seminars, meditation, parenting classes, stress management classes, bereavement classes, addictive behavior modification and trauma reduction.
