UPMC Visiting Nurses
 Behavioral Health

Our comprehensive Behavioral Health program provides a wide range of in-home services designed to help patients and families with emotional problems or psychiatric illnesses. When facing the challenges of a mental health issue, proper support and professional treatment is important to stability and recovery.

Quality, Personalized Care

Each person receives a comprehensive behavioral health evaluation which includes testing for depression, mental status, and a variety of other standardized tests.

Medication management and education is often a critical aspect in successful treatment. Our mental health nurses are experts in medication management and will work closely with your primary care physician to find the best options for your care. Our staff will also assist with referrals and information on community mental health services and follow up.
