Bridging Mental Health, Education and Technology
We are Healthy Life Choices
Healthy Life Choices, GA was founded in 2016 to create person-centered mental health therapy programs to address the needs of the underserved in the community. Treva Jones, its founder, noticed that people were not receiving compassion and care. Unfortunately, not addressing the unaddressed problems of the community is not unique to the New Orleans Native and hurricane Katrina Survivor.
In 2017, an article appeared on the BBC about doctors treating more than 8,000 patients with signs of depression and substance abuse 12 years after Hurricane Katrina. Treva witnessed firsthand the devastation that Hurricane Katrina caused. She experienced firsthand how people were not receiving the consideration and attention they needed in the storm’s aftermath and was determined to do something about it.
The once childhood victim but now victor is no stranger to the various violations that aggressors are capable of administering, from family members to social relationships. As a result, words such as “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to”; “You made me do it” only strengthened the founder’s determination to move forward despite her negative experiences.
Treva Jones is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in trauma and grief. Healthy Life Choices, GA’s culture is purposeful and client-centered, focusing on the community’s under-resourced. Treva has been very successful in helping others who have given up on life to live again by acknowledging their pain and sitting with them through their discomfort and trauma. She is an inspiration to everyone who knows her, proving that overcoming any obstacle in life is possible. Healthy Life Choices, GA is a strong advocate for the community it serves with a proven record of assisting the hurting by letting them know they can Heal- Thy- Life.
