Outpatient Psychiatric Services
Providers at SMHWI specialize in the treatment of mental and emotional injuries that occur as a result of a work-related injury. Such injuries may force workers to take time off work or cause workers loss of productivity. Work-related injuries may be physical, maybe mental, but most times are a combination of physical and mental injury.
A number of studies identified that when injured workers are dealing with elevated and untreated depression or anxiety, in addition to their physical injuries, their duration of the impairment is longer. With appropriate psychotherapy and medications, return to the baseline level of functioning is greatly reduced.
Our goal is to identify these psychiatric triggers and symptoms, address them, and return people back to their social, occupational and interpersonal levels of functioning.
