Providence Psychiatry Clinics

On occasion, some of us need more behavioral health support. This support can take different forms, for instance, weekly visits for psychiatric stabilization or an assessment to determine the right level of care needed at that time.

Providence behavioral health psychiatry clinics can help. Our providers – psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and licensed therapists – develop care plans, manage medications and offer therapy.

Ultimately, our goal is to help evaluate and stabilize patients, whom we hope can return to basic care in the medical home for ongoing management services, including prescribing.

Providence Medical Group (PMG) outpatient clinics welcome adults of all ages, teens and children. Services are offered at clinics located on the campuses of our four Portland-area hospitals.

If you feel that you may need psychiatric stabilization or assessment, talk to your primary care provider for a referral to a PMG psychiatry clinic.

Neuropsychological assessment services

We also offer neuropsychological assessment services for children, adolescents, adults and geriatric individuals. Our comprehensive evaluations seek to provide insight into how diseased or injured neurological structures affect an individual’s functional capabilities. In turn, this information is used to make differential diagnoses, treatment recommendations, rehabilitation planning, and inform educational issues.

Our neuropsychologists work closely with skilled medical and mental health professionals, both within the Providence healthcare system, as well as in the community, to provide the most accurate, up-to-date, integrative, diagnostic hypotheses regarding an individual’s current functional level, and make relevant suggestions and recommendations based on an individual’s circumstances.

Who might undergo neuropsychological testing?

Individuals are referred for evaluations by numerous referral sources, including primary care physicians, psychiatrists, pediatricians and subspecialists. Evaluations are conducted for a wide variety of reasons and situations, including:

  • Traumatic brain/spinal cord injury
  • Hypoxic/anoxic brain injury
  • Concussion/sports concussion
  • Brain tumor
  • Epilepsy or seizure disorder
  • Movement disorder (e.g. Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Demyelinating disorder (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis)
  • Stroke
  • Dementia or neurogenerative disorder
  • Hydrocephalus
  • CNS infection or toxic exposure (e.g. meningitis, encephalitis, ADEM)
