Far West Center offers mental health services for HIV/AIDS patients

Far West Center has received a Ryan White grant from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health to provide outpatient mental health services for eligible persons with HIV/AIDS living in Cuyahoga or Lorain counties. The psychological and emotional impact of HIV/AIDS can be overwhelming. Often, the diagnosis itself triggers a host of mental health problems that worsen symptoms of the illness itself.

Far West Center is an experienced provider of specialized mental health services, including the care of persons living with HIV/AIDS. Outpatient services include evaluation, counseling, psychiatric care, medication, case management, and recovery support sessions. Located on the St. John Medical Center campus, as well as in Amherst, Far West Center is able to provide these services conveniently “under one roof.”

Individuals with HIV/AIDS in need of the Center’s services may self-refer, or be referred by health care providers from local hospitals, clinics or the community. For more information, call 440-835-6212, ext. 230, or email intake@farwestcenter.com.
