While tens of millions of Americans suffer from mental health and substance abuse disorders, only about half of those afflicted receive treatment. If you have a mental health condition, it can affect your feelings, thoughts, daily activities and physical health. Our medical staff can provide a variety of intervention and support for mental health issues. Our primary care doctors can provide basic mental health screenings and prescribe medications for depression, anxiety and other diagnoses and we can refer you to an outside specialist for medication, if necessary. We offer limited one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions with a licensed mental health counselor, and again we can refer you to an outside mental health counselor or specialists if necessary. We are very aware of the connection between the mind and the body and our medical team aims to help support you as best as possible!
