Our greatest wish is for all of our BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES patients to realize that their lives have value, and for them to feel empowered to take care of all aspects of their health. Many of our patients have been abused, stigmatized, and conditioned to believe that they are worthless. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Our client population has an extraordinarily high proportion of mental health and substance abuse issues that must be addressed as part of primary care services. Through the development of behavioral health resources as a core component of services, we help patients address these issues as they emerge, rather than relying on referrals to outside agencies.
Drop in Hours:
Monday: 8:30am – 12:00pm
Wednesday: 8:30am – 12:00pm
We offer patients scheduled appointments during clinic hours, but have learned that having open “drop-in” sessions with providers is one of the most effective ways to increase their access to care. To better serve our clients we offer two weekly “drop-in” clinics, and accommodate clients presenting with urgent needs during regular clinic hours to the extent possible.
Our services are provided by a multidisciplinary team including psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, licensed clinical social workers, and students from masters and doctorate-level degree programs. Behavioral health providers are available for warm handoffs from primary care providers so that these issues can be addressed in the course of a single visit, rather than having to ask clients to return at another time or to refer them to another provider.
