This post provides many behavioral health resources in Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. Independence Now created this guide to help individuals with disabilities find accessible behavioral and mental health services in Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. While these resources can be used by all, this guide was created with specific intention in response to persistent, systemic violence experienced by disabled Black, Brown, Indigenous, and people of color, as well as the ableist framing of mental illness as a cause of this violence. Independence Now supports the right of all people with disabilities to access appropriate mental healthcare without cultural or systematic barriers.
