Far West Center receives grant to help people recover from mental health trauma

Far West Center announces a recent grant award from Community West Foundation to expand trauma-focused mental health services for persons most in need in our community.

All Far West Center services include a screening for trauma, whether recent or past, and clinical care that includes learning skills and creating a personal “toolkit” for recovery from the effects of trauma. The Community West Foundation grant expands these trauma-focused services and enables Far West Center to launch an ongoing trauma recovery support group to help with patients with long-term success.

The Community West Foundation is committed to advancing the health and well-being of our community. Support for trauma care provided by Far West Center is an example of the Foundation’s leadership and generosity in caring for those less fortunate.

Far West Center is an award-winning community mental health center serving residents of western Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties at offices in Westlake and Amherst.
