Institute for Behavioral Health

Welcome to the LECOM Institute for Behavioral Health. We pride ourselves on offering compassionate and quality outpatient psychiatric services and medication management services to individuals at any age. We look forward to partnering with you to deliver the mental health care you need and support your journey towards recovery. The LECOM Institute for Behavioral Health offers extensive expertise and services for children, adults and seniors designed to meet and exceed expectations in addressing behavioral health challenges.

We have a group of qualified professionals who pride themselves on delivering evidence based medicine. Knowledgeable support staff are available to assist you with questions regarding scheduling, medication refills, etc. The support staff functions as a liaison between the patients and the psychiatrists. As an affiliate of the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), our practice is engaged in the education of future behavioral health providers. Fellows, residents, and students work closely with care team members to gain specialized knowledge in the clinical practice setting.

Our psychiatrists do not treat or manage physical illnesses. All care, in addition to medications including labs, EKG’s, imaging, etc., is ordered in support of the psychiatric treatment you are receiving. Patients need to see other providers, including their primary care provider or other specialists, for all other medical concerns.


Outpatient services include:

  • Medication stabilization
  • Individual therapy
  • Electroconvulsive therapy
  • Medication and diagnostic teachings for both patients and families
