For years, Roseanne Bennett had been working in the community as a family therapist. Bennett’s main focus was on offering in-house therapy, and she had worked with many families. It was when she was transferred to outpatient services that she noticed that patients had to wait for too long.
They were made to wait for up to nine months before getting treatment, and this was a dangerous trend. Therefore, she thought of ways of helping these patients so that they could get prompt treatment. That is how Roseann Bennett came up with the idea of the Center for Assessment and Treatment.
Reducing the costs of treatment
Apart from the long wait, Roseanne Bennett also noticed that most patients could not get the services because they could not afford the fees. Low-income earners had many problems, and therefore, they needed an organization which could help them access the services. She could not think of a better way other than staring a non-profit organization that would take care of the interest of such groups. She had discussions with other professionals in the industry and together, they co-founded the Center for Assessment and Treatment. From that time, they have helped many families that would still be suffering because of mental health problems.
The organization started in a humble mode. Roseanne Bennett says that she talked her husband into using some of their home furniture to furnish the offices. However, Bennett embarked on an expansion program that saw them raise funds for various purposes. Before long, Bennett found a lot of support from multiple quarters, and that is how the organization became popular in New Jersey. Today, the Center is the best option for anyone who is having social problems and mental illnesses. The Center counsel families and ensure that they overcome the situations that trigger emotional instability and deny them happiness.
