Behavioral Healthcare Services


The Behavioral Healthcare program has been successfully providing affordable, accessible and professional mental health and psychiatric health care to children, families, and adults in the Greater Mercer County area for over 50 years. Persons suffering from a wide range of problems such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, family, child, or marital problems, can avail themselves of a comprehensive range of outpatient care. The program provides individual, family and group counseling services as well as psychiatric evaluations and medication monitoring services.


Family Guidance Center has a staff of dedicated and highly trained professionals that will develop the right combination of services that uniquely responds to individual needs. Sessions are completely confidential. While many insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare are accepted, the cost of professional services is based upon each person's ability to pay (by aaron at tforge). Family Guidance Center is a licensed mental health facility and is accredited by the Council on Accreditation Services for Families and Children, Inc.
