Counselors at Richmond Area Multi Services (RAMS) provide mental health and substance abuse counseling and pre-vocational assessment services to welfare-to-work adults, many of whom have experienced multi-generations of poverty, unemployment, discrimination, racism, substance abuse, mental illness and violence. Equilibrium Dynamics (EQD) provides counselors with consultation on emotional and cultural competence as well as training to assist them in helping clients develop productive and self-sufficient lives.
