It’s okay to ask for help. You don’t have to go it alone.
Although some changes in memory may occur with normal aging, memory and thinking problems that interfere with everyday life are not considered normal. If you, or a loved one, is suffering from the symptoms of memory loss or dementia, give us a call. We are here for you!
Mental and emotional well-being is essential to overall health. Positive mental health allows people to realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to their communities. As part of your community’s healthcare program, we continue to listen to the voices of our community and to address that expressed. Today, in response to you, emotional care can now be accessed here in Clay County at the Clay County Hospital’s Medical Clinic.
- We offer emotional and psychological assessments of children ages 5 and over, including adolescents and adults.
- Our providers can handle basic to severe issues, as well as covering disorders, social issues, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, and substance abuse.
- We can offer therapy, behavioral health, or a combination of both.
How Do I Access Services?
Your first step to accessing mental health related services is to pick up the phone and call 618-662-2131 in order to speak with our friendly staff. Depending upon the kind of services you’re seeking, you may be transferred in order to answer a question, receive guidance, or schedule an appointment. If you’re not quite sure about what type of services you are seeking, clinic staff will work with you to help you determine and access the services you may need.
We are interested in developing a collaborative relationship with you in which we try to decide together what kind of treatment would be best for you. However, not everyone will be referred for continuing therapy at the clinic. We make decisions on what we believe will be best for the client.
At the end of that first session, if we decide that it is in your best interest to move forward working with the assigned therapist, you will decide on a mutually-agreeable time slot for your therapy sessions (typically, the client and therapist will meet once a week, and each session will last approximately one hour). At your second appointment, you will begin working with your therapist to set goals for your therapy experience and then begin working together toward achieving them.
Therapy can help with just about any type of emotional or psychological problem, including:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Adjustment Disorder
- Grief and Loss
- Parent-Child conflicts
- Eating disorders
Behavior Health is located in the Clay City Clinic.

New! Addiction Clinic
Clay County Hospital is pleased to announce our new Medication Assisted Treatment Program. By educating about opioid addiction in the physician’s office, we’re removing barriers for patients seeking treatment and enabling patients and providers to have better communication.
Opioid addiction is a chronic disease, like heart disease or diabetes. It is not a moral failing. Chronic disease is a medical condition for life. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed. A person with an addiction can regain a healthy, productive life.
We are here to assist your patient through the withdrawal and craving process by utilizing the medication, Suboxone. With this medication, along with counseling and other support, recovery is possible.
