Nevada practice increasing behavioral health capacity for at-risk patients 

Reno-based community health center Northern Nevada Hopes is adding a new behavioral health clinic in Reno, KUNR reported April 18.

The new clinic will offer primary and behavioral healthcare through an intensive outreach program that's designed to fill some of the state's shortage of mental health providers, the report said.

The health center currently doesn't have the capacity to treat all of its prospective patients, the report said,turning away 40 to 60 people each day.

The new behavioral health clinic will help alleviate some of that pressure. It is expected to open in July, the report said.
