Why Convenience Matters to CPCH Patients

At CPCH, we are always looking for ways to make mental health treatment convenient. Why? Learn more from our founder, Dr Jennie Byrne

When you need to get groceries, do you look for a grocery store that is only open from 9AM-5PM a few days a week?

When you want to schedule a haircut, do you have to call 10 different salons and leave voicemails, hoping that 1 will call you back a few days later, and then offer you their first available appointment is in 6 weeks?

Unfortunately, for most people looking to treat their mental health challenges, this is a common experience. We know that just asking for help can be difficult. So when you reach out for help, we want to make sure you get the help you need quickly.

We know that your life is busy! Fitting in appointments during the workday can be difficult, and when you are suffering with mental health issues, waiting weeks or months for an appointment is simply too long. Many people suffer simply because convenient appointments are not available.

At CPCH, we are always looking for ways to make mental health care convenient. We offer early morning, evening, and weekend appointments. We are also able to offer televideo appointments from the comfort of your own home, or even from a private location at work or school. When you need help urgently, we can offer an urgent same-day appointment or an urgent phone call with your doctor.

Please do not let inconvenient appointment times interfere with getting the help that you need. CPCH is here to help!
