Behavioral Health
Behavioral health is an important part of your overall wellness. With special skills in gender, sexuality, and HIV, you can look to us for a range of professional and peer-based services. Whether it’s talking about depression or anxiety, making changes to substance use, managing your psychiatric medication, exploring identity, or navigating life changes, our diverse programming and professional staff of therapists and peer counselors offer affirming care.
 
Behavioral Health programs include peer support, substance use services, mental health, and psychiatry. We offer services to adults and youth. We also provide gender affirmation-related assessment and documentation. The behavioral healthcare team includes licensed psychotherapists (social workers, professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists), psychologists, psychiatric providers (medical doctors and nurse practitioners), and highly trained peers and interns. The assessment and referral process will get you started and will help us determine together which services are right for you.
Services Include:

 

Behavorial Health services are located at 1525 14th St NW, Max Robinson Center, and Eastern Market Locations. Some of our youth services are provided in the community. Psychiatryand individual psychotherapy are available only to medical/primary care patients.  Search our services.
