Healthcare Worker Resources

To Healthcare Workers Across Western North Carolina:

As you provide compassionate care on the frontlines of the unprecedented crisis currently facing Western North Carolina, we want to be sure you have access to the care you need. Blue Ridge Health is pleased to be able to offer convenient and affordable virtual behavioral healthcare services. In times of instability and increased stress, therapy can provide a healthy outlet for heightened emotions and help you process feelings that can often be overwhelming.

While Blue Ridge Health has been offering counseling to our communities for decades, in recent years our behavioral health department has grown to include over 25 therapists. Our therapists offer counseling utilizing helpful approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and somatic (mind-body) therapy – all of which are designed to provide you with the tools necessary to cope with the stressful time in which we find ourselves.

At a time when we are all asked to step up and help our nation survive a crisis, and then assist our friends, loved ones, and neighbors in the aftermath, we would like to partner with you. We stand with you and offer our assistance to you and your family. Please reach out to us. We are dedicated to helping our colleagues.

Call 828-692-4289 ext. 2229 for your virtual care appointment today. Blue Ridge Health offers sliding fee discounts based on income for those without insurance and those with deductibles over $1000.
