Over the course of a lifetime everyone experiences emotional pain or distress.  And for approximately half of all people this distress may include a more serious mental health problem.  The purpose of The Northwestern Mental Health Center is to provide a full array of supportive, sensitive and professional services to the thousands of people in our area who will experience these issues at some point in their life.  Some of these problems include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Family / Parenting / Marital issues
  • Loss and Grief
  • Stress
  • Chemical Dependency / Abuse
  • Work and relationship problems
  • Chronic Mental Illness / Psychosis
  • Abuse and Trauma issues
  • Crisis / Suicide
  • Child and Adolescent issues

Helping people to deal with these problems is a dedicated and experienced licensed professional / practitioner staff working in the areas of Clinical Psychology, Psychiatry, Clinical Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, Education and other allied professions.  In a comfortable and inviting atmosphere, and following principals of strict confidentiality, people have the opportunity to address their problems and to achieve their individual goals.
