Funding for Heartland comes from our FQHC status, grant funding, church and individual support, and fees generated by patients’ financial participation in their own care.

Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Care

Heartland employs a mental health team that includes a psychiatrist, behavioral health consultants, a psychiatric nurse, and AmeriCorps members. We practice an integrated health care model. This means mental health professionals and providers work alongside one another to provide mental and behavioral health screenings, therapy, and associated medications to patients. Often, a behavioral health consultant can visit the patient right in the exam room during their medical visit. Learn more about integrated care by clicking here.
