Behavioral Health

The Behavioral Health Department at RiverBend Medical Group provides a full spectrum of treatments for older adolescents and adults including individual psychotherapy, couples therapy, family therapy, and medication treatment.

Problems we often deal with include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, difficulties coping with stress, interpersonal problems, and substance abuse. Our clinicians include psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers.

You can schedule an appointment by calling the department yourself or receiving a referral from your RiverBend PCP.

Your first appointment will be with a social worker or psychologist. At this appointment you will make plans for ongoing treatment with your therapist, and, if appropriate, discuss whether an evaluation for medication by a psychiatrist would be helpful.

Our staff strongly believes that mental health difficulties arise from a combination of biological, psychological and social causes. Our recommendations frequently include multiple interventions, for example, both medications and psychotherapy. In order to provide integrated care we usually strongly recommend that all treatment occur with RiverBend clinicians.

The Behavioral Health Department is located in our Chicopee Office, at 1109 Granby Road. Phone: 413-523-0900
