Annual Impact Report

“Bringing mental health support to one individual or family is in itself a worthy effort, and our report focuses on care delivered, but we must also keep in mind that an equally important impact is the one harder to measure – better outcomes for families, schools, workplaces, and communities. That too, is the impact of the work that Discovery Counseling Center does. Your support is what makes this possible, and we are incredibly grateful.”

Sumita Bhandari, Executive Director
