As Nicasa Behavioral Health Services remains open as an essential provider, we are accommodating to the needs of individuals and families who are fearful, exposed, and/or sick. In order to streamline our telehealth services, we are in an immediate need for 40 NEW LAPTOPS with video and audio capabilities (must have a camera and internal microphone). This will assist in individual and group service provision, as well to help some of our specialty programming (e.g. Bridge House and problem gambling) access services online that are no longer able to come to them in person (e.g. AA meetings and more). If you have the ability to donate funds, a new laptop, or are able to connect with an entity that can donate these items, please contact the Director of Philanthropy, Vicky Tello, LSW, at Thank you! We appreciate everyone's continued support as we remain open to serve those most in need throughout our community.
