Walking alongside Those with Mental Illness

Walking alongside Those
with Mental Illness

Our mental health programs offer treatment, counseling and
support services for those who need help.

Approximately 18.5 percent of adults in the United States experience a mental health disorder or crisis in a given year.

Due to the shame and stigmatization that surround it, people who struggle with mental illness often suffer silently.

Mental illness affects people of every gender, race, age and socioeconomic level.

Because mental illness often goes hand in hand with homelessness, joblessness, poverty and other challenges, many of our mental health programs offer not only counseling and medical support but also other services like a safe place to live, nutritious meals, life skills classes, referrals to employment opportunities and peer support groups.


The Salvation Army of Omaha offers mental health support through:

The Community Counseling Center offers free, trauma-informed individual and group therapy to those who are often overlooked for treatment in the metro area. We serve those who uninsured, homeless or have very low incomes and are enrolled in other Salvation Army programs. Call 402-898-5871 to learn more.
