Behavioral Health

Chestnut Family Health Center (CFHC) provides short, solution focused behavioral health services.

Mental health is an essential part of our overall health. If you have struggled with feelings of depression, anxiety, trauma or other mental health conditions and want confidential, professional treatment, CFHC is here to help.

We can support you through the stresses of everyday life and as you substitute unhealthy behaviors for healthier ones.

Chestnut offers short-term, brief interventions for individuals, couples and families; referrals for specialty mental health and substance use treatment; safety planning; and outpatient crisis stabilization.

Scheduling Your Appointment

Interpreting Services

CFHC contracts for interpreting services, available by phone, which enables us to provide better service to our patients who do not speak English. Sign language interpretation is also available. We ask for 48 hours’ notice to schedule interpretive services.

Chestnut Family Health Center continues to care for patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. To comply with social distancing recommendations, we are offering some appointments by telephone or video. Our in-house Genoa Pharmacy is offering curbside pick-up and mail order delivery. For patients who are seen in the office, we are doing extra cleaning and have a number of precautions in place to protect your health and ours. During the outbreak, we are following these guidelines:

  • If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or have been near someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not come to our office even if you have an appointment. Please call our office for an over-the-phone evaluation by our staff.
  • If you have concerns about coming to our office for a scheduled appointment, please call our office at least one day before your appointment to talk with staff.

For information on COVID-19 testing please contact your health center:
