Our Mission & Values

Wilmington Mental Health provides evidence-based, person-centered treatment primarily to residents of Southeastern North Carolina. Our mission is to ease the process that allows individuals, couples, and families to receive mental health, substance use disorder, psychiatry, and primary care treatment. We are familiar with the stigma that is associated with mental health and the way mental illness is perceived in society as a sign of weakness or madness. Quite the reverse, we have found that our patients possess high levels of intelligence, resilience, and critical thinking, which allowed them to make the smart decision of seeking help before it was too late. We see if as if they needed assistance with finding alternative solutions to what they are dealing with the same way people find help in a real estate agent when they are trying to buy a house. Moreover, the myth that holds when it comes to substance dependence is that only people who want to change can achieve and maintain sobriety from drugs and alcohol; our data does not support this. Many people do come to us because their friends, family members, employers, or the legal system has somehow ‘coerced’ them to seek help and this initial extrinsic motivation becomes essential in their developing a desire to do things differently. However, we see assisted and independent transformation during treatment. We witness transformation when therapy helps our patients see that changing their present directly impacts their future.

We see therapy as a tool you can use to help you regain control and stability in your life, but your capacity to cope with everyday life stressors and challenges is a collective approach. Your overall wellness depends on the healthy interaction between your mind, body, and the environment. Coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships while ignoring your physical needs or the way your surrounding support your well-being is, in simple terms, insufficient. Hence our integration model incorporates behavioral health and primary care services in one single place – licensed therapists and mid-level psychiatrists and family medicine providers working as a team.

Our Vision
When we reject the stigma around mental health, we embrace our humanity. We provide compassionate, unbiased support to all of our patients regardless of race, sex, age, national origin, religion, or disability. In the process, we challenge conventional beliefs and follow a collaborative approach to provide exceptional patient care in the communities we serve.
Our Approach
We treat a wide range of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral issues through psychotherapy, integrating techniques such as mindfulness, medication treatment and family medicine to restore balance. We focus on symptom reduction and personal development, facilitating awareness, self-understanding, and exploration, and helping our patients develop healthier and more sustainable lifestyles.
Our core mission is to provide care to everyone who needs help and imrprove the community’s understanding of mental health and the connection between mental and physical health, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
