CHNK’s board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) provides comprehensive outpatient psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and brief supportive therapy for clients aged 6 and older.
As a registered GeneSight provider, our Nurse Practitioner also offers pharmacogenomics testing and review of the results; this testing studies how a person’s individual genes affect the body’s response to certain medicines. Practice specialties include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and mood disorders.
Targeted Case Management
CHNK offers Targeted Case Management (TCM) as part of our robust continuum of care for individuals and families in need of mental health and addiction services. Many times, a client receiving therapeutic care from CHNK might also benefit from access to social, educational, or medical services. A targeted case manager helps connect the client (and their family) to these services by working with the patient and their therapist to develop an individualized care plan. The case manager also monitors progress and collaborates with other community providers to help each client achieve their personalized care plan goals.
Intensive Outpatient Program
CHNK Behavioral Health offers multiple Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) that follow a structured, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approach to therapeutic care for individuals who need help recognizing, managing, and overcoming mental health and/or substance use disorders.
Partial Hospitalization Program
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at CHNK Behavioral Health provides quality outpatient care for adults aged 18 and older who have been diagnosed with a significant mental illness and/or substance use disorder. Our treatment team is comprised of an advanced practice registered nurse, a board-certified psychiatrist, and licensed therapists. We use a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) informed approach to guide the program’s structure. Our trauma-informed approach to care creates a treatment environment that is safe, acknowledges human emotion and loss, and empowers future possibilities.
