Local Health Department opens Behavior Health Practice for community


A ribbon cutting ceremony took place Tuesday in Taylor County to help spread the word about finding the right help for mental and behavioral illness.

The Grafton Taylor County Health Department (GTCHD) opened its office of Behavioral Health Practice.

The Behavioral Health Clinic of the Health Department will bring new outpatient services to adults and children struggling with psychological and social problems.

“We’re working with childhood behaviors. We’re working with anger management type referrals that may come from the criminal justice program, but pretty much the entire gambit of behavioral health is available right here.” said GTCHD Administrator, Boyd Vanhorn.

New services that are issued to patients include help with anxiety, eating disorders, depression, suicide, bipolar disorder and PTSD, just to name a few.
