Mental health care often gets a bad reputation. Whether because it’s a newer practice or because some people have a hard time understanding or believing that someone can have a mental condition that inhibits them in some way, we here at Albemarle Square Family Health Center take mental health seriously. Our doctors understand that mental illnesses can impact nearly every part of your life. All aspects of your well being, including emotional, psychological, social, and even physical, can be affected when a mental health issue arises and goes unchecked. At Albemarle Square Family Health, we believe that all forms of mental health issues are serious, whether they’re considered big or small, and it’s important, no matter what stage in life you’re at, to have them examined by a healthcare professional that you trust.

Our top goal at Albemarle Square is to help our patients achieve the best possible health they can. Utilizing a holistic approach to medicine, our physicians care about every aspect of your health and well being through every stage of life. In doing so, we here at Albemarle offer a total health approach from the second you walk through our doors. We’ll work with you to find the problem so we can work to fix it as quickly as possible.

Albemarle Square offers mental health care and counseling to all of our patients, regardless of age. Mental health is no longer something that must be addressed outside of your primary care physician or preferred doctor. At Albemarle, we offer both physical and mental health screenings and consultations under one roof. But if needed, we can always refer you or a family member to outside mental health specialists. However, all of our doctors will encourage every patient to share what’s happening in their lives, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. That way we can administer the best possible care we can.

Our doctors and nurse practitioners are experienced and well informed on how to handle and help treat a multitude of mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other illnesses. We use an integrative approach to offer our patients the highest quality support. Our treatments can include lifestyle interventions, counseling, dietary changes, and herbal or pharmaceutical treatments when needed. Albemarle believes that medication is not the only way to combat mental illness – in some cases it may even be the last resort solution we utilize. We will work with all patients to accomplish their mental health goals in ways they’re comfortable with.
