Best Blogger Tips
We are very proud to announce that for the second time, The Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) awarded Catholic Charities Behavioral Health Services (known for many years Anchor Mental Health) with a five-star rating on its annual Provider Scorecard. A five-star rating is no easy feat- it’s the highest score possible to attain for providers of behavioral health services and identifies Catholic Charities Behavioral Health Services as a top-service provider in D.C.
In 2015, CC Behavioral Health Services
 served 1,067 individuals

“The five-star rating shows that the hard work we’re doing is recognized and it really shows how hard our staff works and their dedication to serving those with mental health challenges,” said Karen Ostlie, Director of Catholic Charities Behavioral Health Services. 

For more than 50 years, our Behavioral Health Services team has worked in the community to support individuals with their mental health needs and help them find stability. Many of the individuals served at Behavioral Health Services are among the most vulnerable, and face multiple struggles as they seek help treating a mental illness: homelessness, no insurance, no income or work, and often dealing with substance abuse or chronic health problems.

“It’s important to us that when they walk through our doors they feel welcomed and they feel like their voices are being heard. We pride ourselves on providing a safe space for individuals to recover and meet their personal goals by providing the highest quality of service,” said Ostlie.

Our Behavioral Health Services staff is dedicated to providing the highest quality service to those in need day in and day out. The five-star rating is a great accomplishment for this team and we couldn't be prouder!
