Behavioral Health

At Altru, we believe that health is more than simply physical health. Supporting your health means promoting the overall wellness of your body, mind and emotions. Through our behavioral health services, we provide transformative care for a variety of mental health conditions.

Mental health challenges can significantly impact not just the life of the individual, but the lives of their loved ones, friends and communities. Our team-oriented approach to mental wellness brings a spectrum of specialists and providers to support you.

Behavioral Health Clinic

At Altru's Behavioral Health Clinic, we offer comprehensive outpatient treatment, professional assessment and therapy for individuals and families who need mental health support. Our team of psychiatrists, psychotherapists and nurse practitioners can provide a personalized plan combining various modalities of therapy, medications and other treatments for conditions such as depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship issues, life transitions, grief and loss.

Effective December 22, 2023, the new location for the Behavioral Health Clinic will be located in the hospital at 1200 South Columbia. For questions, please call 701.780.6697.


Therapy is a highly effective treatment for many mental health conditions. Our providers are skilled in different therapy modalities, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy and the strength-based approach.

We provide therapy services for individuals, families and couples.

Appointments at the clinic can be made through provider or self-referral. For more information or to make an appointment, call 701.780.6697.

Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, social workers, case workers and other specialists can provide stabilization, evaluation and treatment for mental health crises and situations requiring intensive care.

Our behavioral health unit offers medical care, individual and group therapy, occupational therapy and social work assessment and discharge planning. We also offer a therapeutic school program for children and teens.
