Behavioral Health Services


When psychiatric services are needed, we’re ready in the Jacksonville community.

The psychiatric services team in Jacksonville is prepared to help you with your behavioral health needs. Behavioral health includes emotional, psychological and social well-being. Variations from positive mental health can affect your thinking, mood and behavior.

It’s important to seek professional help when you need it. Several behavioral health options are available in Jacksonville. Passavant Area Hospital has both an outpatient clinic, The Center for the Psychiatric Heath, and the new Behavioral Health Unit, a 10-bed inpatient unit. Memorial Behavioral Health offers extensive services on an outpatient basis as well. Plus, the Wells Center provides assistance to individuals and families suffering from addiction.

Providing awareness, intervention, and access to mental health care gives residents of Jacksonville and the surrounding communities the opportunity to live healthier lives. Our local psychiatric services can provide you with the support and treatment to overcome mental health challenges.

EMS Provider Class Preview Night Nov. 9

Posted on: October 19, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital is offering a special opportunity for individuals interested in becoming a volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) provider. An EMS Provider Class Preview Night will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9, in Meeting Room 4 at Passavant. Participants are welcome to come and go during the preview night. The preview night gives potential volunteers age 18 and older the chance to meet EMS program staff (including Passavant staff and volunteer EMS providers from around the area), view training equipment, learn about the local EMS program and discuss EMS class opportunities and available grants. “Our first responders are crucial to providing the best pre-hospital care,” said Travis Wilson, EMT-P, LI, Passavant’s assistant EMS coordinator. “We value our current volunteer EMS providers, but we are always looking to increase the base of volunteers in our service area. This preview night is a great way for anyone thinking about volunteering to talk with some of our current EMS volunteers to get a feel for what’s involved.” Passavant provides emergency medical technician/responder classes for area EMS agencies. The next class starts Jan. 15, 2018, and meets Mondays and Thursdays from 6 to 10 p.m. Anyone with questions about EMS classes can contact Wilson by calling 217-245-9541, ext. 3929. Last month, the Passavant Foundation provided a $35,000 grant to recruit and train volunteer EMS providers in the Passavant service area.                                                                                     # # # # #
