Behavioral Health

A healthy body needs a healthy mind, behaviors, and lifestyle.

Mental and emotional health is an important part of overall health and wellness. Our behavioral health providers work closely with you and your Primary Care Provider (PCP) to help you meet your health care goals. We provide short-term counseling or help in a crisis. We can help you address such concerns as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, smoking cessation, substance use, and chronic conditions.

At Unity Care NW, coordinated, integrated health care means that:

  • Your PCP can refer you to a variety of behavioral health services provided by our behavioral health professionals.
  • You can receive a referral to Unity Care NW psychiatrists for medication management.
  • Behavioral health staff can refer you to mental health counselors for low-cost mental health counseling or provide mental health counseling at our health center.

Unity Care NW offers other wellness programs to help you improve your health. Our behavioral health groups provide a safe environment to work through symptoms, decrease isolation, and provide support. We offer:

  • Chronic Pain Groups, where you can discover ways to better manage pain, learn about relaxation techniques, and participate in movement therapies such as Qigong/Tai chi and Yoga.
  • Wellness Groups, including healthy cooking, mindfulness skills, support for chronic health conditions, and enhanced coping skills.
  • Peer Lead Art Group, where you can bring your own art/craft to work on or learn a new technique.
