Psychiatry

Dealing with the demands of everyday life can be a struggle. You may face mental health concerns that keep you from living a productive, healthy life. We can help.

Chestnut Family Health Center offers psychiatric care. Through medication and counseling, we can help you manage conditions that affect your behavior and well-being. Our caring staff can help you work through behavioral, social, family, school, and work difficulties. We can help you overcome concerns including addiction, and get the process started.

If you are a patient of Chestnut Family Health Center and would like help with any of the conditions above, talk with your doctor or another provider. Not already a patient? Make Chestnut Family Health Center your medical home by:

  • Calling us at (309) 557-1400 (Bloomington) or (618) 512-1919 (Granite City) to schedule a visit.
  • Notifying your insurance carrier of your change in primary care provider.
  • Completing paperwork to have your medical records forwarded to Chestnut Family Health Center.
  • Using Chestnut Family Health Center instead of an emergency room, prompt care, or another provider for all non-emergency medical services (preventive care, wellness visits, acute illnesses, disease management).
  • Scheduling and completing at least one preventive care visit per year.


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.
