New! – Mental Health Counseling
Rooks County Health Center believes in treating the whole patient and has teamed up with FreeState Healthcare to offer innovative and cost-effective psychological services, evaluation and treatment via a secure telemedicine network.
Patients video-conference face to face with a licensed psychologist and utilize electronic medical records for a hassle-free experience that saves time and money from unnecessary travel. The Benefits of Mental Health Counseling:
- Cultivate Healthier Relationships / Reduce Pain – Work through depression, anxiety, excessive stress, sleeplessness, and chronic pain. These and other psychological problems interfere with daily life and regular counseling gives the patient the tools to handle the life’s ups and downs while increasing their sense of joy and contentment in all facets of their life.
- Reduce Medical Expenses – Research indicates that untreated mental health conditions often results in nearly twice the number of doctor visits than those who attend regular counseling. Additionally those who seek counseling are less likely to engage in behavior which may lead to further medical complications through the use of tobacco, drugs and alcohol.
- Live More Fully – Improving one’s mental state results in reduced stress and a strengthened immune system. Counseled patients are more likely to be productive at work and satisfied in their personal lives.
