The Department of Behavioral Health’s mission is to provide community based services to individuals, families and groups to promote mental, physical and spiritual well being.
Our caring and compassionate staff works closely with local physicians, school officials, human service agencies, hospitals, nursing homes, and clergy in the community. We offer a wide range of mental health services, including diagnostic evaluation, psychotherapy and marriage and family counseling. A psychiatrist, a family physician, or nurse practitioner, in consultation with other health professionals, performs medication management. Our staff also offers a variety of community programs, educational services, vocational counseling, and consultations to children, older adults, families, agencies and community groups. Specialized supportive group programs are also available.
