Behavioral Health

Kinwell offers behavioral healthcare to help navigate life's challenges.

Two Levels of Care

Relationships, stress, work-life balance–your emotional well-being is as complicated as your physical health. Kinwell offers behavioral health consultations as part of primary care to address life’s occasional challenges. Patients struggling with long-term issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and drug and alcohol misuse, may benefit from more frequent counseling sessions through our Behavioral Health Therapy program. Kinwell’s behavioral health team uses science-based approaches to develop strategies that help patients cope with difficult situations and move beyond them.
