ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Carilion Clinic hosted a ribbon cutting for its new Carilion Mental Health Facility at the Tanglewood Mall on Tuesday, Oct. 10.
Opening on Oct. 17, the new facility will be staffed by 300 employees and includes 70 providers aiming to accommodate about 800 clients per week. The space occupies nearly 37,000 square feet, spans two floors, and includes group therapy rooms, support groups, clinician offices and telemedicine infrastructure.
“The goal of relocating is to fight the stigma surrounding mental illness and reduce barriers to care,” said Dr. Robert Trestman, Ph.D., M.D., and Chair of Carilion Mental Health. “We are here in a shopping mall, in a healthy environment, making it easy for people to come seek treatment across the lifespan because we provide care for very young children all the way through the very elderly.”
The facility will host a variety of outpatient mental health services, including:
- Child and Adolescent Mental Health
- Geriatric Mental Health
- The Center for Healthy Aging
- Women’s Mental Health
- Clinical Research
- Center for Grief and Healing
- Adult Treatment Programs (mood disorders, anxiety, etc.)
- Interventional Psychiatry
Following the grand opening, the facility will be open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
