Your Well-Being Matters to Us
Good healthcare involves paying attention not only to physical health, but also stress, emotions, habits, and behaviors, and how they interact with your medical conditions.

Behavioral Health Providers are a part of your patient-centered care team at NHC and work closely with your other providers to give you comprehensive care. We cannot prescribe medications, but we can help you manage the symptoms for which you are using medications.
Behavioral Health Providers are licensed psychologists, counselors, or clinical social workers who specialize in helping people develop skills and make changes to improve their overall health and manage their health conditions.
Behavioral health sessions are usually 20-30 minutes every 2-4 weeks, and most patients are seen by their Behavioral Health Provider between 1 and 6 times. You may also receive a referral for services outside of your NHC clinic, as needed (such as seeing a mental health counselor).
Our care teams provide high-quality whole-person care, supporting each patients' unique mental, emotional, and physical health needs. The care you receive at NHC will help you get healthy and stay healthy with collaborative solutions right for you and your particular situation, regardless of your residence status, citizenship status, income, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, or religion.
