Behavioral health clinic opens in Pittsboro


PITTSBORO — Monarch, a provider of behavioral and mental health services, recently opened its Behavioral Health Outpatient Office in Pittsboro. The new location will offer a range of mental health and substance use disorder services. This facility is a collaboration with Vaya Health and aims to address needs in the Chatham County community for such additional services in these practice areas.

The newly opened facility offers walk-in/open access services for immediate assistance. In addition to on-the-spot support, the office provides comprehensive clinical assessments, psychiatric medication management, and therapy for individuals, groups, and families.

“Monarch is proud to open a new behavioral health office in partnership with Vaya Health in the Chatham County area,” said Monarch President and CEO Peggy S. Terhune, in a release. “As a long-time provider of mental health services in North Carolina, we understand the impact additional services like these can have on overall community health.”

The Pittsboro office, situated at 193 Lowes Drive, Suite 102, is open Monday through Friday, with walk-in patients accepted until 3pm. Monarch has also expanded its support in Chatham County through Mobile Crisis Services and Mobile Outreach Response Engagement Stabilization.

"It has been an honor to partner with Monarch on the development, and opening, of Pittsboro's newest behavioral health office,” said Donald Reuss, V.P. of Behavioral Health at Vaya Health. “The critical resources and support services that will soon be provided, have the potential to make a lasting impact in the community and those within it.”

To mark the opening, Monarch and Vaya Health will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on November 30, which will be open to the public. This event will offer insights into the new office, service information, and remarks from leadership of both organizations.
