The Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center is now serving more people with mental needs in the Lowcountry than ever before after opening a new facility in Hardeeville.
Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center provides family support, psychotherapy and outpatient substance abuse treatment. It started in Holly Hill in 2010 and eventually expanded to Hilton Head, Bluffton and Beaufort. However, ever since it opened a new location in Hardeeville two months ago, representatives say the program has been helping more people than ever.
Jamison Consultants serves families receiving Medicaid. It has served about 3,000 families since it opened in 2010. Organization representatives say Jamison Consultants has been serving an additional 150 families since the Hardeeville location opened up in the beginning of October. The new location is closer to I-95 than the Bluffton site. Representatives say it provides easier access to more people in need, especially in the Hardeeville and Ridgeland areas.
“South Carolina is an undeserved state and we have smaller rural areas where a lot of people do not have resources to get to outpatient services so by expanding and making easier access for them, we can cater to those families,” said Stephanie Jamison-Void, the CEO of Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center.
Jamison Consultants representatives say the families which previously used the Bluffton site are still going the Hardeeville location.
The program also provides youth services and recently partnered with Jasper County Schools for outreach programs.
