Welcome to Veridian Behavioral Health

Veridian Behavioral Health providers and therapists are now providing vCare (virtual healthcare) to patients! vCare provides convenient access to healthcare removing the need to come to the physician office for a visit. Patients can receive healthcare from the comfort of their own home! Not all visits are suitable for virtual care, so be sure to contact your healthcare provider to determine whether vCare is appropriate for your medical care.

Welcome to Veridian Behavioral Health, a multi-disciplinary center offering dedicated quality mental health care. Veridian is part of the behavioral health department of Salina Regional Health Center.

As part of SRHC, we offer a full continuum of care for Central Kansas.

Many of Veridian's services are geared toward individuals and families who are struggling with common life problems such as depression, anxiety, marital problems, parent-child conflicts or grief and loss. Our services are provided in a convenient and comfortable, private office setting.

Veridian psychiatrists provide direct care in an office setting while actively serving in various settings, such as intensive outpatient care, inpatient care in Salina Regional Health Center and in nursing homes.

Veridian psychologists provide a range of testing that assists in the delivery of care for all our clientele. We also have a wide range of experienced psychotherapists licensed at the highest clinical levels within their professions as marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and social workers.

If Your Child Has Difficulty Adjusting

It is extremely difficult to cope with stressful situations that last for a long time. Children have less ability to cope with stress because of their limited life experiences. Some symptoms that your child may be having difficulty adjusting include:

Veridian Behavioral Health offers virtual healthcare services (telemedicine) using vCare, which allows patients to receive care at their hometown hospital. vCare is a tool that makes it possible for physicians to use computers and video communication in order to provide virtual consultations. These consultations occur in real time and allow both provider and patient to participate in a visit remotely that is just as private as an in-person appointment. The emergence of virtual healthcare has provided access to specialty care for patients in rural areas including the north central region of Kansas. Patients can enjoy quality care while eliminating the costs and time associated with traveling to receive specialty care and reducing time away from work or school.
