 Mental Health

 Rise Above Defeat employs evidence-based approaches to mental health care access; and therapeutic approaches to address negative thinking, behaviors and personal trauma. Our methodology includes ongoing resources and coping mechanisms that promote continued inner healing. 

The demographic Rise Above Defeat serves are individuals living at or below the poverty line. Rise Above Defeat is passionate about equipping individuals to rise above any mental health challenges to lead productive lives.  

We provide group and individual counseling to youth and adults remotely, and at a fraction of the cost. Our evidence-based approach to providing therapy has led to reduced cost, improved access, and improved mental health in underserved communities.

Studies indicate that mental health care is accessible to roughly 70 percent of communities across the United States, however only 14 percent of communities living at or below the poverty line have the mental health services that are needed. The minimal access to mental health services are amid even more staggering statistics that indicate one of the most common mental health disorders in the United States is major depression.

The disparity of mental health services worsens among youth and adolescents in the United States living in poverty where 21% of youth and children as young 6 to 17 years old have a mental health disorder. Rise Above Defeat exists to provide equal access to communities that need it the most.

I wanna thank you for everything you have done for me. I really loved my sessions I've had thus far. I've learned so much from Tiara. I feel a better sense of life now because of these sessions. And everything I've learned I will take with me throughout life. Thank you guys for this opportunity. Happy Holidays Take care.



My 14 year old received services here with Rise Above Defeat for 8 weeks and I must say that the Christian Life Coach Yavon(Nikki) was patient and attentive with my teenager. I saw my child learn to be assertive and how to communicate concerns instead of assuming and becoming upset. I have definitely noticed a change. 


Signed a happy parent. - BMM

The Rise Above team is very organized and reflects the love of Christ. As a participant I felt comfortable and safe to open up to my counselor. I was given good spiritual warfare strategies to deal with the trauma of my past.
