As one of Maryland’s leading Outpatient Mental Health Clinics (OMHCs), Maryland Wellness is committed to providing individualized mental health care and life skills support to strengthen clients, families and communities. We help adults and minors, including those who are at-risk and under-served, achieve their full potential through our Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP)/case management, therapy, psychiatry and addictions counseling services. We assist our clients in progressing along their mental health journeys, while supporting them in finding resources and managing day-to-day needs like housing, employment, transportation, clothing and food security, GEDs and education, family support, expungement and more.
We employ a person-centered approach within our clinical practices. Our clients are not their diagnoses, and deserve the utmost respect as they bravely cope with their mental health conditions. We respect our clients’ rights to choose and be active members of their treatment teams.
Maryland Wellness provides compassionate and affirming services to all individuals, regardless of race, religion, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic class or other designation.
Originally founded in 2013 as Baltimore Area Community Health Services (BACHS Healthcare), the agency was developed to meet an unmet need for critical mental health services in Baltimore City. Nearly 20% of the city’s residents are affected by behavioral health conditions, due in large part to a disproportionate exposure to trauma.
The agency has continued to grow to encompass organizations including Alek’s House in Lanham and Aspen Wellness Center in Cumberland, in order to provide increased services and resources. We officially transitioned to Maryland Wellness in mid-2021 to reflect our ability to serve individuals across the state via telehealth and in offices in the Baltimore Metropolitan Region, Western Maryland (including Frederick, Hagerstown, Cumberland and Oakland), Southern Maryland and the Capital Region.
Our agency has consistently been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), an independent, nonprofit accreditor in various areas including behavioral health. It confirms that our clinicians provide clients with care that meets internationally accepted standards and reinforces that we meet an integrated and individualized approach to services, quality and outcomes.
How are we different?
Easy referral process
We want to provide clients and partners with immediate support via phone or a simple online form. Our goal is to set up initial appointments within 48 hours.
Deeply commitment to our clients
We do not automatically discharge clients after missed appointments. If a client does not show up for an appointment, it’s an indication they need us more than ever, and we will do everything we can to re-engage them.
Wide breadth of wrap-around services and benefits to help clients deal with life’s challenges
Our goal is to remove any barriers that might stand in the way of clients achieving their mental health goals. We are always looking for new ways to meet our clients’ needs, including the implementation of mobile medication delivery and provision of transportation services. In Baltimore City alone, we distributed more than 5,000 bus passes in 2021 to our clients to ensure they could get to their jobs and other critical points of service.
Strong roots in the community
We collaborate with community organizations, hospitals, mental health agencies, resource providers, nonprofits, therapists and family members to help each client get the support they need. In turn, we regularly give back to our communities to help spur progress and enhanced support, as well as foster strong relationships with partners.
