Community Mental-Health Care
Delaware Behavioral Health has both Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners (APRNs) and Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) so patients can have one clinic for medication management and psychotherapy.
Our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have advanced medical training so they are able to evaluate and diagnose mental health conditions as well as prescribe medicines to treat them. Click here to learn more about medications commonly used in mental-health treatment
Pharmacogenetic testing helps our psychiatric providers learn what medications are likely to be most effective for each patient using a painless saliva sample. Learn more here: Genomind.com
DBH clinicians are committed to helping people from all backgrounds and walks of life overcome challenges so they can live their best lives.
Our Therapists are Licensed Clinical Social Workers who have been trained to understand how our mental health is connected to other aspects of our lives, such as our living situations and life histories. Along with medical help when necessary, talking with a therapist can be very helpful to relieve mental health symptoms. Psychotherapy can be short- or long-term, and along with talk therapy, some therapists use methods such as Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), which is based on scientific research about how the brain heals from traumatic experiences.
