Behavioral health is about caring for the whole person to discover ways to improve mental and physical health and wellness.

During this challenging time it is common to need some extra support with the stresses of life such as worries, sadness, feeling lonely, headaches, trouble sleeping and more.

Managing stress and emotions

It’s normal to experience some feelings of stress, worry or sadness. Sometimes strong emotions can impact our ability to live life to its full potential. Getting behavioral health care can teach people of all ages new skills to help manage difficult emotions, improve relationships, and reduce stress and fears.

Healthy lifestyle changes

Making life changes can be challenging, but behavioral health care makes it easier by helping us reflect on our habits and make realistic changes to reach our health goals. Common wellness topics that behavioral health can help with include:

Living with medical issues

It can be hard to cope with the challenges of living with an ongoing medical issue. A behavioral health care professional can provide motivation and recommend self-care skills to meet your health goals while living with a medical condition, such as chronic pain or diabetes.

Get the care you need and deserve

Behavioral health consultants at Neighborcare’s neighborhood clinics are part of a health care team that help patients at every stage of life, from young children to older adults. They work side-by-side with medical and dental teams to help their patients understand their feelings and actions so they can make changes to reach their personal goals.

Behavioral health services at neighborhood clinics are available to any Neighborcare Health patient who has established care with one of our medical or dental providers. Current patients can call a clinic to make an appointment or talk to their provider to be connected with a behavioral health team member.

Care for all ages

In addition to our neighborhood clinics, Neighborcare also offers mental health services for students at school-based health centers, and services for youth and adults experiencing homelessness through the Homeless and Housing programs.

If you are not a Neighborcare Health patient, you must first establish care with a Neighborcare medical or dental provider. Call a clinic to make Neighborcare Health your health care home.  School-based health center and Housing and Homeless program patients do not need to establish care with a medical or dental provider before meeting with a behavioral/mental health team member.
