About Psychiatry at USA Health

Mental health issues are common, as one in five adults will experience a mental health issue at some point. USA Health is committed to providing first-rate psychiatric care through our partnership with AltaPointe Health Systems, the second-largest community behavioral health provider in the Southeast. The USA Department of Psychiatry's affiliation with AltaPointe Health Systems allows us to offer a comprehensive range of both inpatient and outpatient services for adults and children. Together, we make sure that everyone in our community can get the help that they need.

USA Health offers experienced outpatient care for common mental health conditions.

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health issues that people face. For adults dealing with anxiety and depression, we provide experienced outpatient care including cognitive behavioral psychotherapy and drug therapy.
