In announcing the move into the Raleigh region, Maurice Pressley states, “We are delighted to have our services and multidisciplinary care teams here in the triangle.  Our work, spanning more than four decades of helping the people of North Carolina, has shown that mental health impacts emotional, psychological, and social well-being and affects how we think, feel, and act. Helping more individuals and families work through their concerns and issues related to their mental health is behind our move into the Raleigh community.”  Joining Pressley in the new Pride Raleigh office and serving the Wake Country area are Program Coordinator, Brianna Session, Administrative Assistant, Georgia Noeth, and Outpatient Therapists Kyria Mabiala, Nicole Baltimore, and Aaliyah Warren.
