How easy is it to access mental health services? I’ve heard some say it is very difficult. But my guest this week says, it’s actually not as difficult as others may think. In this interview I chat with Alicia Dalton, COO of QCI Behavioral about the different ways people can get access to services. QCI is a comprehensive behavioral health solution in the DC Metro Area and Alicia breaks down all the ways you can get help. As the COO, Alicia serves the community by creating programs and policies to help clients connect to the mental health services they need. It is her passion to bring serenity to the lives of others.
This interview was amazing. I was blown away by all the knowledge Alicia dropped! QCI offers mobile units, home visits – they even meet clients at local store.
