Apicha Community Health Center’s social worker can provide you with short-term counseling or a referral to another provider depending on your individual needs. Our psychiatrist is available for an initial evaluation and medication management.

Please note:  With all Apicha Community Health Center patients, a referral from your primary care provider for a psychiatric evaluation or medication management is required. 

Apicha Community Health Center’s Behavioral Health Services are not meant for patients who have been diagnosed with severe or chronic mental or behavioral health issues. We will provide referrals to patients who require long-term psychotherapy.
