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. Are you feeling sad, stressed, lonely, or hopeless? Are you using substances, struggling to make lifestyle changes, or having a hard time adjusting to change? Those behavioral health considerations can affect an individual’s physical health. Likewise, chronic illness and pain can affect an individual’s mental health. By coordinating care, our talented clinical staff can offer integrated services to address a broader spectrum of care considerations. Behavioral Health is located in our Family Medicine Clinic.
