NAM Launches New / Expanded Behavioral Health Services

Northwest Assistance Ministries announces the launch of our new / expanded Behavioral Health Services Program. NAM is also proud to announce Candace Runaas, MS, LMFT-S, will lead the program as the Director of Behavioral Health. "This is just the next step in a diligent process to provide significant behavioral health services to the community", said NAM President / CEO, Les Cave. "We have been providing limited services for a few years now but this is a major milestone in service delivery", added Mr. Cave.

The program will receive referrals from all of NAM's programs as well as direct client requests. Thanks to significant funding from Houston Methodist Hospital Foundation and our partnership with Our Lady of the Lake University Marriage and Family Therapy Program these service will be offered to the community at no cost.

Areas of behavioral services that will be provided:

  • Depression / Anxiety
  • Parenting / Family Counseling
  • Marriage Counseling
  • Substance Abuse
