BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

At Valley View Health Systems we focus on your physical health, but we also understand your mental and emotional well-being are at the heart of your care. We are expert listeners who hold a compassionate space throughout your care. We join you in the commitment to get results guiding—not pushing—you in achieving your behavioral and total health goals.


Have you experienced traumas in your life? Struggled substance or habits that prevent you from being your very best self? From today’s daily stresses to substance abuse, you will find our behavioral health care team is here for you. You are at a safe place at Valley View Health Centers. Here you can open up, learn possibilities for change, and find the steps to achieve what has seemed impossible. 


Here, YOU matter. And what's unique about you matters greatly, too. We respect differences in age, gender, sexuality, lifestyle, ethnicity, culture and social norms. We embrace and celebrate who you are at the core and hope to empower you in understanding your truest self. Let's work together to identify your goals and put a plan in place that supports solutions you can trust for life. We are currently accepting appointments at the Jackson, Waverly and West Portsmouth locations. Our behavioral health services are also covered by our sliding fee scale.
