Mainstream's new Chatham office is located here on Main Street in the former PATHS location.

CHATHAM, Va. – This past March, Mainstream Mental Health Services opened a new facility in Chatham in the former PATHS location on Main Street.

Mainstream Mental Health Services believes in providing goal-directed, person-centered training. Their goal is to help individuals in need achieve and maintain independence in their communities.

 “We do outpatient counseling, crisis intervention and stabilization,” said Mike Morris, Mainstream CEO and president.

The clinic also offers mental health skill building. This is a community-based program that aims to help individuals who experience serious mental illness. The program’s target is to reduce the likelihood of further psychiatric hospitalization.

Mainstream also offers psychosocial rehabilitation, which consists of a wide variety of educational and training approaches meant to inform and train patients in needed skills to enhance their life.

The clinic’s main location opened in Roanoke in June 2012 and has quickly grown since. The new Chatham location has 13 staff members and is growing quickly, according to Morris.

All treatments as well as length of treatments are on an individual basis and do not have set time commitments.

More information can be found on the facility’s website, www.mainstreammh.com.
