We treat the whole person in one setting.

The grant will support up to a total of 500 visits by March 31, 2021. Frontline workers who are interested in making an appointment with a mental healthcare professional via telehealth or in person should call 239.658.3000.
Chest pains lead to important behavioral health diagnosis
“I was going through a difficult time,” said Alondra, a 12-year-old who suffered from anxiety-induced chest pains. “Dr. Whitt helped me put things into perspective and provided me with coping exercises that help me maintain a positive mindset when I am feeling stressed.” Remarkably, Alondra’s experience inspired her to join Students’ Alliance on Mental Illness (SAMI), where she and other students work to connect peers in need with mental health providers.
PAYMENT ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE
Healthcare Network provides payment assistance in the form of a Sliding Fee Scale. It’s one of many ways we are making healthcare more accessible to all.
