Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health services at Desert Senita are ways of helping people with mental illness or substance use disorders. For example, counseling and more specialized psychotherapies seek to change behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and how people see and understand situations. Along with counseling, medication management of symptoms can provide an effective way of helping individuals achieve and maintain wellness and recovery.  

At Desert Senita we address all sorts of concerns, from simple life adjustments to more serious conditions. We can help you with whatever challenges have been thrown your way, freeing you to think about more important things! We help your friends and neighbors everyday with issues such as these: 

  • Anxiety and Fear

The Behavioral Health department works closely with our local court system, school district, and Department of Child Safety. We offer individuals and families a variety of ways to experience counseling: face to face sessions, telehealth, home-based services, and in collaboration with our primary care providers.  

Behavioral Health services are covered by most commercial insurance companies, Medicaid, Medicare, and sliding scale fees based on income. 

It is very easy to connect with all Behavioral Health Services and department staff. Please call (520) 387-5651 and select option “4”. Often it is possible to see a counselor within one day of the initial call to our office.  

For crisis situations, please call the Southern Arizona Crisis Line: 1-866-495-6735.
