Inova Health System Expands Behavioral Health Services

Fairfax, Loudoun Counties Get Vital Mental Health Services

Falls Church, VA – (November 23, 2009) – Inova Health System has opened three new outpatient behavioral health clinics in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, in areas that previously lacked these vital services. Established in the Mount Vernon area, northern Fairfax County and Leesburg, the clinics provide patients with access to behavioral health evaluations, medication evaluations and ongoing medication management.

“Mental health is an important yet often overlooked healthcare service,” said Shirley Repta, Executive Director, Behavioral Health, Inova Health System. “Our goal is to provide world-class, financially viable behavioral health services to all the communities we serve.”

Services at the new clinics are provided by a team of experienced psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners (a licensed clinical psychologist is available for individual therapy and psychological testing at the northern Fairfax clinic location).

The clinics also offer a Partial Hospitalization Program, which provides a structured treatment setting for individuals transitioning from psychiatric inpatient settings or for patients who, without partial hospitalization, would require inpatient care.

Services include:

  • Acute crisis stabilization
  • Medication consultation
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Individualized treatment plan
  • Cognitive behavioral groups
  • Psycho-education groups
  • Medication education
  • After-care/Discharge planning
  • Psychological testing

The Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to improve personal functioning in multiple areas of daily life.
