Behavioral Health

Mental wellness is an important piece of our overall health. That's why Columbia Memorial Hospital's behavioral health services are integrated into our primary care clinics. There's no stigma to behavioral health care. We can all benefit from it.

Our approach to behavioral health

Behavioral health care can help us all enhance our well-being. It can also build resiliency. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, managing ADHD or trying to quit smoking, therapy can give you the tools to live your best life.

CMH's Planetree certification reflects our person-centered approach. We're focused not on our goals, but you and your goals. We are here to listen to and empower you.

At CMH, our therapists and primary care providers work together. We see you as a whole person, not a diagnosis. We look at the social factors that impact your health too. This big-picture perspective empowers us to provide multidisciplinary care. All of our behavioral health services are confidential and protected by HIPAA.

Counseling services

CMH has expanded the one-on-one counseling we provide to meet the needs of our community. If there are behaviors you want to change, we can help you create a change plan. At CMH, you'll find a skilled partner to help with everything from solution-focused short-term counseling to psychotherapy.

Our providers use validated standardized measurement tools to track progress. This evidence-based approach always applies — whether you need parenting help or are struggling with depression.

Our behavioral health consultants

At CMH, our behavioral health providers are all licensed clinical social workers. This helps them look at the larger picture, including the systems that affect your well-being. In addition to counseling, they can help you connect to services to meet your needs.

All of our therapists are experienced in trauma-informed care too. And we offer eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

Whether you're looking for a substance-abuse specialist or a counselor who is well-versed in LGBTQ issues, CMH has you covered. We treat people of all ages, from young children to older adults.

How to access behavioral health services

To find the behavioral health provider who is right for you, call your CMH primary care clinic. Our staff will connect you to the expert who will best meet your needs. Appointments are available in person and virtually.

The cost of behavioral health care depends on the services and the length of your visit. Our finance team works closely with insurance companies to ensure that your coverage is applied correctly. We also suggest you speak to your insurance company about your benefits.

If you need to pay out of pocket, self-pay discounts and financial assistance may be available. Check out our price estimator tool to get an idea of your costs.
