EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy
The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) utilizes this natural process in order to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Therapist Cindy Bartel is trained to use EMDR.

In 2008, AFCS and six partner agencies-Bellin Psychiatric Center, Golden House, N.E.W. Community Clinic, New Community Shelter, The House of Hope and St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter-were selected to be the recipient of the US Oil Open Fund for Basic Needs Collaborative Grant. The Greater Green Bay Community Foundation led the selection process for this $300,000 award ($100,00 per year for 3 years). These seven agencies have collaborated to develop the Mental health Outreach Resource Expansion (MORE) Program. The staff travel to each location, thus making it more convenient and accessible for the persons who will be accessing the services, as well as providing continuity of care. Services include mental health counseling, psychiatric assessment and medication management, psycho-education and staff consultation through the dedicated services of a full-time mental health therapist and a half-time Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber. If you would like more information about the services this grant supports, please contact us at (920) 437-8256.
