San Luis Valley Community Mental Health Center (SLVMHC), a progressive mental health center, has been nationally recognized for its success in helping individuals, couples and families with the challenges they’re facing, both big and small. Such challenges are typical for a soldier returning from military life to home; reconnecting with family and friends can be strained, reintegrating into the community can be difficult. SLVMHC, with convenient office locations in Alamosa, Monte Vista, La Jara, Antonito, San Luis and Center, is ready now to take your call. That’s right. No waiting list…no red tape…and strictly confidential. All treatment services provided by SLVMHC to the returning soldier and his/her family are kept in strict confidence. Unless requested by the person receiving services, this information is not shared with the Veterans Health Administration or other government agency. The professional staff at SLVMHC are skilled in the assessment and treatment in a variety of areas, including: depression; anxiety; substance abuse; children’s issues; relationship issues; PTSD and traumatic brain injury.
SLVMHC provides 24-hour, seven-day-a-week crisis intervention and assessment. We also offer outpatient therapy, psychiatric medication, consultation and case management services. Working together, our professional staff strives to provide the best possible service planning for individuals and their families.
