Aspire Counseilng is a mental health non-profit in Gaithersburg MD serving middle, low-income and uninsured residents of Montgomery County. We run a community-based program 'Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies' which provides free home-based therapy to low-income, uninsured County women diagnosed with pre-natal and post-partum depression. Connecting women with community resources (food assistance, baby goods) is a fundamental component. OUr therapists visit the women in their homes to provide therapy and help them recover, at no cost. Maternal depression in low-income women is higher, yet available treatment options are essentially non-existent. Aspire is the only organization in Montgomery County providing free home-based treatment.
