Behavioral Health Services

Our commitment to community.

For years, our Community Health Needs Assessments have identified a top need in Pocahontas County as behavioral health resources.  In 2019, PMH was proud to take action on this need and begin to offer our own Behavioral Health services. “My philosophy is the client is the expert on their own life. I seek to help people get ‘unstuck’ to find their strengths in order to increase their hope for positive change in their lives. I love helping people feel better emotionally,” says Program Director Amy B. Mitchell, Ph.D., LICSW, CAADC.

Services available.

Four main treatment focuses for all ages of patients (Medicare, 18 and older, children and adolescents in family therapy sessions with legal parent/guardian):

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Adjustment issues
  • Relationships
  • Addictions of all types
