" I feel like I have a real hope for healing and am now more aware of my needs.  And, I am not ashamed of this."

This is one client's comments from our recent customer satisfaction survey.  So, yes, counseling can truly turn your life around and give you hope and meaning.  And, if we can eliminate the stigma of mental illness, and reach more people in need, we will have a bigger impact in this community.

Please consider donating to Provident.  With your help, we can reach more people in need through our 24/7 crisis hotline, five counseling offices and 10 afterschool programs in the City and Jennings.

Donate here to make a difference in peoples' lives.

September 5 - 11th.  Let's raise awareness about the issue of suicide.  Learn the signs and symptoms so you can help those in need.

In the U.S., suicide is the second leading cause of death for those 15 - 24 years of age. For all ages, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death while homicide ranks 17th.  So despite all the attention that crime rates receive in the news, suicide should be a much larger concern.

Provident offers training to teach people how to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide and also how to deal with it.  Please click here
