We understand physical and emotional health are connected and our thoughts, feelings and actions can affect our physical health. Our Behavioral Health providers help patients struggling with chronic medical conditions, stress, depression, anxiety, substance use, sleep problems and weight management. We serve all patients, regardless of ability to pay. Meet our providers.
Behavioral Health support is available at all of our clinic locations. Virtual appointments available as needed via secure video chat or phone consultation. To make an appointment, call 970-879-1632 in Routt County and 970-824-8233 in Moffat County.
Once our patients establish care with a medical provider, they have access to affordable and timely medication management assistance. We can connect patients to a psychiatric nurse practitioner who specializes in managing mental health medications. Patients meet with our psychiatric nurse practitioner in-person or via videoconference and work with a primary care provider and/or behavioral health specialist at Northwest Colorado Health to establish a medication and health management plan. We also offer Medication-Assisted Treatment for our patients in a primary care setting.
