Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Complete wellness, from head to toe
Emotional and behavioral health plays an important role in our overall wellness. That’s why Wellstar Behavioral Health provides whole-person care that considers every part of your well-being.
When you turn to Wellstar for behavioral health services, you’ll have a team of caring and skilled behavioral health professionals at your side. Committed to supporting your physical and mental well-being with a large offering of behavioral health services, we’re ready with the care and guidance you need to get back to living your best life.
Together, we’ll create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. From inpatient to outpatient psychiatric care, and even specialized services for individuals with chronic medical conditions, we’re here for you whenever you need us.
Once admitted to a Wellstar inpatient behavioral health unit, our team will complete a thorough evaluation. This assessment will help us determine the cause of your or your loved one’s distress, including any underlying medical conditions. After evaluation, our team of experts will work with you and your family to develop an effective and personalized treatment plan.
As clinical health psychologists, we understand how physical health and illness can be impacted by psychological, behavioral, social and cultural factors. That’s why our health psychologists may provide pre-surgical evaluations to help ensure a successful medical outcome, provide support to help you adjust to a new medical condition, or work with you or your loved one to change lifestyle behaviors that are contributing to the onset or worsening of a physical health condition.
Whatever the case, rather than focusing only on mental health, we use a comprehensive approach to help you or your loved one reach their goals and live life to the fullest.
Our specialized health psychology programs include:

When you or a loved one need emotional or behavioral support, we know it’s common to turn to a primary care provider for help. That’s why we’ve developed an integrated behavioral health program, which includes on-site behavioral health providers at many of our primary and specialty-care clinics.
These clinicians work with your primary care physician to help with emotional or behavioral conditions that could interfere with your quality of life, including:

With a specialized understanding of brain-behavior relationships, our skilled neuropsychologists can effectively evaluate, diagnose and treat neurocognitive disorders or known brain conditions, such as stroke or brain injury, that affect you cognitively, emotionally and functionally.

Together with you and your family, we’ll work to improve your knowledge of your condition — and help you plan for and adjust to your treatment.
Our team is also invested in training future neuropsychologists through our Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) residency program. Our APPCN program promotes an exciting atmosphere filled with learning, teaching and collaboration.
