Katelyn Arvin, LPCC, NCC, Behavioral Health:
Here at Baptist Health Richmond, we acknowledge the importance of accessible behavioral health care. When someone out in the community needs to access care, we want that to be something they can access 24/7.
We really value having a warm handoff and having a clinician walk patients through the overwhelming process of accessing behavioral healthcare. Someone can come to the emergency department 24/7. We will do an intimate evaluation of their individual needs and connect them to referrals that make the most sense for them. Behavioral health could look like medical detoxification, medication-assisted treatment, intensive outpatient services, family or individual counseling or marital support. Or, maybe getting folks connected to other services in the community.
Here at Baptist Health Richmond, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to serve folks in our community, and we will continue to enhance and develop our services to meet people’s individual needs. We’re able to expand services by partnering with KORE, the Kentucky Opioid Response Efforts, to develop robust behavioral health services in our community.
If you or a loved one is struggling, we want you to know that it’s OK to not be OK, and we are here to support you in your journey from the beginning to the end.
