River City Advocacy provides hope and healing to people, regardless of income or mental health diagnosis.
Mental health and wellness is already on the minds of millions of Texans: 76% of Texans have a a friend or family member that has experienced a mental health issue, and 9 in 10 believe it’s harder to discuss a mental health condition than a physical illness.* Despite this, many in need of care do not have access to affordable, quality mental health services. We know that Texans deserve better, and our community deserves better.
Our responsibility to our community is forged by our relationships to one another and our desire to strive for a common good that represents the best and most noble instincts of our country: to care for one another, to act in good faith and to let no one - no matter their circumstances - go unseen or unheard.
If that sounds like too much praise for our little house, I ask you to consider the countless voices of our clients and consumers who express disappointment that much of the world outside our walls does not approach them with the same kindness and understanding that they sense the moment they walk through the doors at RCA.
What we do is important not simply because it meets a need, but because in a time of profound national distress, it is done with conviction, civility, and respect.
New Space, New Faces, New Groups and MORE!
July 13, 2021
If you haven't been able to stop by our new location at 1614 West San Antonio Street, please do! We love giving tours and showing off our new space that has allowed us to serve more people in our community! We have some new faces around and some return faces as well, so please top by and say HI!
In July, we started a new Wellness group that will meet every 2nd and 4th Saturday. Our first session was last Saturday with a mini bootcamp workout and the focus for discussion was positive body talk and how to increase self esteem. July 24th will have a pilates / yoga style workout and talk about meditation for stress relief.
We also continue to host our other Peer Support Groups like the ones below.... thank you for your continued support of our programs and for helping us with our increased need for counseling.
