Inova Mount Vernon Hospital
Who We Are
Inova's outpatient behavioral health services are available to patients who need acute care but who are not at imminent risk to themselves or others. Outpatient services include behavioral health evaluations and treatment services, as well as ongoing care for diverse psychiatric disorders. Staff psychiatrists and nurse practitioners provide assessments and medication management. A licensed clinical psychologist is on staff for psychological testing.
The mental health program treats Bipolar disorders, Schizophrenia, personality disorders, suicide intervention, alcohol, drug or chemical substance abuse or addiction, phobias and serious depression and anxiety.
Evening sessions for therapeutic groups are offered in varying topics and formats. The staff is dedicated to meeting each patient's needs and provides both clinical care or, when appropriate, referrals to alternative community services and levels of care.
