Behavioral Health


More than one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness, according to the CDC. If you’re struggling and need support, the UHealth Clinic at Walgreens is here for you.

Through our behavioral telehealth services, you can access care from the comfort of home, using your smart phone, tablet, or computer.

We’ll connect you with a board-certified psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner who can help you get the care you need – virtually and at your own pace.

Why seek treatment with us?

Our behavioral telehealth services provide a flexible care option to address a wide range of mental health challenges.

Do you feel like talking with someone about a major life change or the loss of a loved one? Maybe you’re feeling anxious or stressed about a professional or family situation. Or perhaps you’ve started a new medication and don’t feel quite right.

For these and many other challenges, we can help. Count on our behavioral telehealth services for support with conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief and adjustment
  • Life changes
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Stress and worries
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And more

What do our behavioral telehealth services entail?

Virtual behavioral health services through the UHealth Clinic at Walgreens include three main components:

1. Mental health assessment

Your telehealth care starts with an initial one-hour telehealth consultation.

During this time, a board-certified psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner will ask questions and screen for various conditions. For example, you may discuss:

  • Your symptoms and how you’re feeling.
  • How your condition may affect your routine and usual activities.
  • Potential concerns such as fatigue, mood swings, or difficulty concentrating.

2. Diagnosis

After your initial assessment, the nurse practitioner will talk with you about what may be causing your symptoms. Some common conditions treated include:

  • Depression. It’s normal to feel down or sad sometimes. But if you have depression, these feelings can occur over a long period of time and impact your day-to-day life.
  • Anxiety disorders. Anxiety is an overwhelming feeling of worry or fear that interferes with everyday life.
  • Stress. We all feel stress at certain times. But if stress gets out of control, it can impact your health and even lead to conditions like depression and anxiety. In some cases, it also may cause unhealthy behaviors like overeating or excessive substance use.

3. Telehealth treatment options for depression, anxiety, stress management, and more

Based on your diagnosis, our nurse practitioner will work with you to develop a treatment and follow-up plan tailored for you. For example, treatment options may include:

  • Therapy. Talk therapy (also sometimes called psychotherapy) can provide a way to better understand and cope with different feelings and emotions. It may also offer perspectives and strategies to help you manage your thoughts and behaviors.
  • Medications. Some people may benefit from medications such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and others. Our nurse practitioners can prescribe medications if they are part of your treatment plan.
  • Other strategies, as needed. If you need more specialized care, you may benefit from additional treatments at the University of Miami Health System. UHealth is a leader in the region for advanced psychiatry care.

Benefits of telehealth mental health services at Walgreens

Telehealth mental health services at Walgreens make it easier to get quality care that can improve your mental well-being. For example, benefits can include:

  • Privacy. You can feel secure knowing that your treatment is private and confidential. Also, being in your comfortable environment may help you feel more at ease discussing your health concerns. Just like in an office setting, privacy rules protect the information you share.
  • Convenience. With telehealth, you don’t have to worry about transportation or taking time off work to drive to a doctor’s office. Also, you don’t need to make plans to navigate a busy office if you have mobility issues. You can schedule appointments that are convenient to your schedule and needs.
  • Greater access. Telehealth has expanded visit options and made care more accessible. This means you can often get care and treatment sooner. Even if you live far from care providers, you don’t need to worry about travel.
  • Effectiveness. You don’t need to sacrifice effectiveness when you use telehealth for your mental health care. It can be as effective as in-person care. At Walgreens, you can also feel good knowing that your care is backed by the expert psychiatric team at UHealth.
