Finding a Mental Health Provider
- We recommend that individuals call their local Academic hospital systems. Once you have done so, ask for their department of psychiatry. You can not only ask if they are taking new patients, but also if they have recommendations for outpatient psychiatric providers in your area. Academic hospitals often keep lists of local providers who they recommend and/or accept insurance in their area.
