Amistad Health Community Center has prided itself on providing service for the community of Corpus Christi. The affordable care clinic is now offering services for mental health.

Their new department, the Behavioral Health Wing has been available but will have their grand opening today at 4 p.m.

Director of the Behavioral Health and Therapist, Dr. Diane Herrero says, “a big part that’s missing is the behavioral health, these people are not only dealing with the pain and diabetes and chronic illnesses, but they are also dealing with depression, and anxiety and everything else that comes with ya know, being sick or just needing help.”

Amistad hopes to help patients not only in the physical state, but overall including the body as a whole.

The Behavioral Health Wing will have individual counseling, psychological counseling, psychiatric counseling for needed medications, and they hope to include group counseling.
