Jamel Garrett

Jamel Garrett, a native of Clayton, NC, is on a mission to make a positive impact through his career in mental health services. He acquired an Associates in Applied Science in Mental Health Services and holds certifications as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (2013) and Maryland Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor, in addition to being a Maryland ADT.

Jamel's dedication to his field extends to his ongoing pursuit of knowledge. Currently, he is in the midst of a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program at Walden University, demonstrating his commitment to furthering his credentials and expanding his expertise.

His career path was shaped by a profound realization during his deployment to Iraq in 2008, where he discovered his passion for assisting others through their struggles. This revelation led him to transition from Security Forces to Mental Health Services. In 2014, after becoming a certified counselor, he was stationed at the DoD prison in Charleston, SC, solidifying his desire to continue this work beyond his military retirement. Having witnessed firsthand the devastating impact of untreated mental health issues and addictions on both his career and his family, Jamel is determined to contribute to the healing process.

In his personal life, Jamel is a proud husband and father to two children. His two-decade-long career in the Air Force has instilled in him a strong sense of discipline and dedication. Beyond his professional pursuits, he finds enjoyment in basketball, reading, and the enriching experiences of travel. Jamel's multifaceted life reflects his commitment to his family, his country, and his enduring passion for helping others find healing and hope.
