How Can We Help?

Behavioral Health services are part of Utah Navajo Health System and our offices are located in the medical clinics at Montezuma Creek, Monument Valley, Navajo Mountain, and Blanding. We also provide services directly to the Four Corners Nursing Home in Blanding, as well as local grade schools and high schools in Montezuma Creek, Monument Valley, Aneth, and Navajo Mountain.

We maintain confidentiality while we work closely with your primary care doctor and often you can be seen by behavioral health the same day you call in or almost always within the same week. Our clinics are a safe environment where we focus on a holistic approach including your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Our services include counseling and therapy, traditional practitioner, APRN for prescribing, child and adult psychiatry via tele-medicine, supported education, wrap around services for children, case management, victim’s advocate for victims of crime, classes and group therapy for recovery from addictions, Prime for Life DUI courses, ADHD assessment for children, and crisis intervention.

Our mission is to help people of all ages who are experiencing or who have experienced difficult problems that they cannot manage. People who have trauma, anxiety, depression, marital or other relationship problems, parent and child problems, chronic medical conditions, addictions, thoughts of suicide, grief, or who are victims of physical, sexual and or emotional abuse.

We believe that there is hope – you are not alone

Community involvement is crucial in promoting wellness. We try to outreach to the community for both their needs and their support particularly for the elderly and the disabled and make ourselves available to give talks and participate in community discussions.

We are members of the Utah State Zero Suicide Coalition for San Juan County as well as the San Juan County Prevention Coalition. We provide outreach to families who have suffered loss of a family member and to those who are concerned about a loved one. In addition we provide Critical Incident Stress Management debriefings to EMS personnel and teach ASIST and Safe Talk courses to train community members on how to intervene and help prevent suicide.

The We Are Navajo website will be a place where we can inform and connect the San Juan community with resources as well as providing a community calendar of events. Additionally our goal is to cover hundreds of health care topics including behavioral health conditions while including Navajo heritage insights through traditional Navajo teachings and medicines.

Contact the front desk at any of our UNHS clinics to set up an appointment without a referral or if you choose your Dr. would be happy to make a referral and connect you with us.
