Health and Wellness

Hospital pathway

Access to the mental health care they need is the entry point for most of our clients. Many have suffered for years without seeing a doctor or receiving a proper diagnosis. Health care prevention means saved money, time and lives.

Green Door Behavioral Health encourages health promotion, provides primary care, and oversees medication therapy management to ensure our clients have a holistic view of their health and care.
