LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - South Central Regional Medical Center and the Jones County Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed a new behavioral health clinic to Laurel Tuesday.

Progressions is a clinic designed to provide a structured treatment environment for those experiencing depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and other behavioral health disorders. They provide treatment or referrals to individuals and family members of the mentally ill. Services are available to adults over the age of 18 and geriatrics.

Their services are designed to treat mental illness in a dignified, respectful and compassionate manner.

"We provide the piece from the inpatient facility," said Nicole McCardle, Program Director, Progressions. "We're linking that gap whenever they are discharged they can help over what they get from their psychiatrist. We're like that in-between service."

Transportation is provided free of charge to and from the facility within a 50 mile radius.

For a free consultation and evaluation or to refer a potential patient call 602-425-3979.
