Our philosophy is that mental and physical health go hand-in-hand. That's why we have an "integrated" model of care where we address all of your physical health concerns in addition to talking about any external or mental health challenges.
If you are struggling with finances, childcare, or housing, or any other necessity, you may become stressed and overwhelmed. Eventually, that impacts your health. We have dedicated Case Managers who can connect you with local resources and services. Talk with your provider at your next appointment. We'll connect you with the right person to help you navigate these challenges.
We provide behavioral health services to patients of all ages, ranging from traditional therapy to substance misuse counseling. Most of the time, we can provide brief behavioral health interventions during regularly scheduled appointments. These interventions are conducted by a Behavioral Health Clinician (BHC) to help identify and manage mental health, substance misuse, and crisis-related issues. If you're interested in seeing a BHC, please talk to your Primary Care Provider at your next appointment.
We also have Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners who can provide psychiatric medication assistance. Common mental health issues treated at Amoskeag Health include anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. Once patients are stabilized on their medication regimen, they are transferred back to their Primary Care Providers.
Everyone works together on your healthcare team.
