Taking care of your mental and emotional well-being

Behavioral Health: Because You Matter

People who need behavioral health services represent every group you can imagine — family and friends, colleagues and co-workers, neighbors and children. Leading with compassion, our mental health experts help you identify the cause of anxiety, depression, or mood disorders while providing open-minded treatment that controls symptoms and improves your quality of life.

Our Care Team and Services

Our experienced staff includes psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, advanced registered nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and other clinical support resources. We work closely with patients and family members to develop a therapy program that supports a return to a full, productive life as quickly as possible.

Ready to schedule an appointment? You may need a referral.

Referrals can be made by anyone — physicians, social workers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, mental health professionals and service agencies or self-referral. After the referral, we make an assessment to determine the most appropriate level of care. Appointments can be scheduled Monday through Friday at our office near Summerlin Road and College Parkway in Fort Myers.
