more acceptable and
For over 25 years, our team has worked to positively impact Baltimore City and surrounding counties by playing active roles in the development and support of several community programs and initiatives. Over this time, our team has developed and managed schools and after school programs, trained and enhanced the community’s knowledge of healthcare services, taught and consulted in Baltimore City Public Schools, and assisted community members through the facilitation of various rehabilitation programs. These experiences have allowed us to gain a personal and professional understanding of what our consumers are facing and relate to community members from a variety of backgrounds, demographics and economic situations. Our work has helped us to recognize that mental health and well-being must be given the proper attention and dedicated services we are proud to offer.
Who we are
Our Purpose is to build communities from the inside out.
Our experience with and attention to the needs of community members and stakeholders is what sets us apart. Author, poet and psychologist Bonaro Overstreet said “We are not only our brother’s keeper; in countless large and small ways, we are our brother’s maker.” Understanding that we have to be more than just ‘our brother’s keeper’ has motivated us to empower people with the tools and support they need to make themselves better. It’s this passion and commitment to helping individuals and families heal themselves that drives us to deliver care, treatment and consistent support to the communities we serve.

Above It All’s team of licensed clinical therapists work one-on-one with youth and adults to assess, diagnose and treat individuals in need. Treatment is offered in a safe and confidential way to ensure the best possible care.
Therapeutic Mentoring is called PRP which stands for Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program. This service is therapeutic because we work collaboratively with therapists on existing diagnoses. In order to receive PRP services, a referral must be made by a licensed therapist/psychiatrist. Following a referral, a Direct Care Counselor is assigned and an Individual Rehabilitation Plan is developed with the individual and family. Visits are held in the individuals’ home, at our office and in the community.
Direct Care Counselors meet with individuals at least once per week:
- Youth at least four (4) times per month
- Adults at least six (6) times per month
Above It All’s companion program R.I.S.E. (Recovery – Independence – Success – Evolution) offers counseling and treatment for youth and adults who are recovering from or actively using drugs and/or alcohol. Licensed clinicians work with individuals to help them understand their addiction problems and how those struggles can lead to emotional challenges or behavioral issues. The R.I.S.E team then assists in developing a treatment plan catered to their specific needs.
Above It All offers interactive in-person or virtual seminars for youth, parents and staff. Youth workshops teach personal values, decision-making, life skills and more. Parent meetings offer information on mental health, managing behavior, improving communication and more. Staff trainings range from Intro to Mental Health Awareness to Crisis Prevention Institute Training (complete w/ certification).
