Our Services

Behavioral Health Services

Gunnison Valley Health partners with the Center for Mental Health to provide a new model of care to better address the behavioral health need of Gunnison Valley residents. Lorie Fuller, Gunnison Valley Health's behavioral health specialist, works in direct coordination with our clinical care staff to identify and address behavioral health needs in patients. Is a patient feeling sad, stressed, lonely, or hopeless? Are they using substances, struggling to make lifestyle changes, or having a hard time adjusting to change? Those behavioral health considerations can affect their physical health. Likewise, chronic physical pain can affect a patient's mental health. By coordinating care, Lorie and our talented clinical staff can offer integrated services to address a broader spectrum of care considerations.

We offer evidence-based, solution-focused therapy.

Our Behavioral Health Services include:

  • Brief behavioral change assessment and planning
  • Individual therapy
  • A counseling space within a primary care facility to alleviate any anxiety related to social stigmas
  • Education and support groups
  • Suicide prevention
  • Integrated services with multiple agencies
