Why a Local Chapter?

We have started a local chapter of CAPS in Houston to provide a sense of community and as a resource for Christian mental health professionals. The work that is done on a daily basis by each of us can be taxing and difficult. A place of community and encouragement is important as Christians and professionals. Also it is a good opportunity to share resources and elevate the quality of care that the Christian community can provide to this great city.
