Behavioral Health

Behavioral health, sometimes referred to as mental health, describes the connection between behaviors and the health and well-being of the body, mind, and spirit. Charles Drew Health Center prides itself on being a resource – for behavioral health and more – for the community we serve. While we offer only outpatient care at this time, we can refer you for additional care if needed. CDHC retains several licensed behavioral health therapists on staff who can help you start healing.
