Mental Health

Comprehensive mental health services are available for patients through a referral by a Mountainlands primary care provider. On-site services are provided at our Provo, Payson, and Vernal sites. Our staff includes a psychologist, masters-level social workers, and psychology externs. Services can be provided in English and Spanish.

The goal of outpatient mental health services is to help people cope with current stressors in order to minimize the impact on their daily lives.  We offer a variety of services for individuals, groups, and families that address a range of mental health, substance abuse, and social issues.  Our mental health providers can help you and your family overcome the challenges you face with respect and dignity.

 

Mountainlands Community Health Center is proud to provide integrated care services.  We offer coordinated primary care and behavior health services for those who need them.
