How to get tested for cancer at Mayo Clinic, which is expanding mental health services
Mayo Clinic has expanded mental health care to other parts of the country, including Arizona, after finding a need in the state.
According to Mayo Clinic President and CEO Dr. David K. Kravetz, mental health clinics across the U.S. have been struggling with a shortage of mental health providers due to a lack of state funding.
“We see mental health in Arizona as one of the most critical issues in the nation, and it’s one of our top priorities for the future,” Kravets said.
“We have seen a significant increase in our need for mental health, which we have to ensure is being met in the Arizona HealthCare System, so that our patients have access to quality mental health and psychosocial care.”
The Mayo Clinic launched a mental health program called the Mental Health Clinic, in late 2015, to serve the growing need for health professionals to provide services.
The clinic offers free, self-guided training for people with mental health issues, including how to identify a mental illness and how to address it.
Currently, the clinic has about 30 patients, Kravez said.
The clinic is now offering additional training to all of its mental health clients.
“We’re working with more of our mental health partners, and we have a growing number of patients,” Kravitz said.
The Mental Health Clinics at Mayo is located at 611 N. State Street in Phoenix, Ariz., and at the Mayo Clinic Medical Center in Rochester, Minn.”
We’re in the process of adding more mental health training classes, but right now, we are focusing on Arizona.”
