Welcome to Prime Behavioral Health, LLC
Prime Behavioral Health specializes in providing competent and caring mental health services in the Southeast Columbus area including Fairfield County and surrounding counties with offices in both Pickerington and Lancaster, Ohio.
Our experienced clinical staff members are trained to provide services from normative transitional issues such as divorce recovery, blended family issues, vocational changes, grief issues, etc. to more serious conditions such as depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and various other mental, emotional and substance abuse disorders.
Special attention is given to a client-centered approach that seeks to take into account the specific needs and wants of each client.
If you are currently experiencing a situation in which you have concerns about your own well-being or that of a loved one and do not know the next step to take, please contact our office. Our staff can assist you in setting up an intake appointment with a qualified mental health specialist who will aid in identifying appropriate treatment options.
Keep in mind that anyone who is 18 years or older must set up his/her own appointment. Please have your insurance card available when you call in order to complete the scheduling process. You may reach our Pickerington office at 614-833-6900, or our Lancaster office at 740-653-6500.
PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES IF YOU CALL FOR AN INITIAL APPOINTMENT AND ARE TOLD THAT WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Unfortunately, we are not always able to meet the demands for appointments and have to put a hold on schedules at times so that we can give better service to our existing clients. Be sure to call back every few weeks to see if the status has changed if you are given this message.
