We are delighted you are here!
Better Things Inc. is a faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to provide attachment- and trauma-informed support for professionals who provide spiritual, emotional, and physical care for the people in our community.
Attachment and trauma difficulties are two significant barriers to achieving optimal mental health and wellness. Better Things, Inc. was founded to help residents of Aroostook County, Maine overcome those barriers.
While every person’s experience is unique, most behavioral and mental health needs are trauma-related. Some sources indicate as many as 90% of individuals have experienced or witnessed at least one traumatic event. The negative impact from such events is healed in the context of healthy attachments. Typically we learn to form healthy attachments in early childhood, however, research has shown more than one-third of parent-child relationships are insecure.
“…beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you…” Hebrews 6:9a, NASB
