The Psychiatry Wellness Service

The Wellness Center is a specialized outpatient program that offers personalized and comprehensive psychiatric care to adults, children and adolescents.  Comprehensive evaluations are performed and used to develop individualized, patient-centered pharmacologic and psychological treatments in collaboration with the individual and based on their unique needs. With an understanding that co-occurring medical illnesses, interpersonal relationships and other psychosocial stressors impact psychological well-being, we work with each patient in promoting communication with other medical professionals, close family members and significant others when appropriate. We strive to make psychiatric care accessible and convenient to our patients by offering nighttime appointments, as well as telephone access to their treating psychiatrist after hours.
