[December 03, 2013]  Mental Health Centers of Central Illinois will relocate its staff to Memorial Physician Services-Lincoln, 515 N. College St., effective Monday.

When it makes the move, MHCCI will offer expanded hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with walk-in appointments accepted until 3:30 p.m.

"We believe this move will offer our clients the best of both worlds," said Jan Gambach, MHCCI president. "We’ll be able to provide the same personalized care but in a more comfortable and confidential setting."

The Lincoln office primarily serves individuals who live in Logan and Mason counties. The office phone number will remain unchanged at 217-735-2272 for scheduling appointments, contacting therapists or case managers, and calling for assistance for directions to the new location.

By providing therapy and support in a primary-care setting, patients will have access to integrated care to address issues such as depression, anxiety or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

"Patients often first report illness, whether physical or emotional, to their primary-care provider," Gambach said. "By having a therapist on-site, the primary-care provider can offer immediate services by a trained professional who can recommend interventions that can have a greater likelihood of success."

MHCCI staff members will join therapists with Memorial Counseling Associates, also a service of MHCCI, who already have offices at Memorial Physician Services-Lincoln.

An affiliate of Memorial Health System, MHCCI provides a range of mental health services to nearly 9,000 children, adolescents and adults each year in six counties: Logan, Mason, Menard, Morgan, Scott and Sangamon.
