Brain Health Clinic

Crescent Community Health Center's Brain Health Clinic provides integrated brain health services to individuals with traditional brain (mental) health needs. Integrated care means that a person is actively engaged in medical and brain health services (internal or external). It is our belief that treating the whole person leads to better outcomes overall. 

All our clinics utilize the same electronic medical record which allows for quick and easy sharing of information (as needed) to aid in care coordination, collaboration, and consultation.  Those involved in integrated care internally have access to a multi-dimensional care team to help address various health care needs. Integrated care teams can consist of any of the following:

  • Primary Care Providers (Medical)
  • Brain Health Therapists
  • Psychiatric Prescribers (BH Medication)
  • Dental Providers
  • Care Coordinators
  • Clinical Pharmacists
  • Wellness Professionals (Nutrition/Exercise)

Active involvement in integrated services means that a person is consistently showing up for their scheduled visits and complete routine wellness and/or preventative exams (i.e. physicals, etc.). The brain health clinic care team (pictured above) is made up of counselors, psychiatric prescribers, nurse practitioners, nursing staff and medical assistants. Specific therapeutic techniques and ages served vary based on the providers on staff.

Brain Health Access Centers

What is an access center? Simply put it is urgent care for brain health needs (mental health and substance use). Like urgent care a person does not need to be referred to the center rather they can simply walk-in. If someone has transportation, they can simply go to the center directly. If they do not have transportation, they need to call mobile crisis (see number below).
