Consultation and psychoeducation can be offered at two levels.
- For individuals who may desire general guidance and information about the nature of emotional distress, psychological problems, relationships and mental illness, without committing to therapeutic service.
- For individuals who would like to have a consultant/advocate assist them in finding appropriate psychotherapeutic care tailored to their unique circumstances (ex. sensitivity to cultural and religious variables) within the U.S. health care system.
These encounters are brief, spanning a session or two. If there is presence of severe psychological distress, then consultation will only be offered contingent upon the client’s commitment to receiving face-to-face mental health treatment within their locality.
