At Neighborhood HealthSource, we realize being healthy mentally and emotionally is just as important as having a healthy body. Behavioral healthcare can be expensive and hard to access, especially for people without health insurance.
That’s why we offer a variety of behavioral health services at our clinics. We also offer treatment for substance abuse. Patients can pay for behavioral health services on the same income-based sliding fee scale we use for medical services.
Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in our communities, all behavioral health appointments are being held as telehealth visits. This means that instead of coming in to the clinic, you will meet with a behavioral health provider over the phone or via HIPAA-compliant video chat. If you have questions or want to schedule a behavioral health appointment, please call us at 612-588-9411.
