About Regional Mental Health
Regional Mental Health has been serving Northwest Indiana since the 1970’s. After providing the community with quality, comprehensive mental health services for so many years, Regional looked to change the physical health disparities of its clients and of the residents in the communities that it serves. In March of 2014, Regional Health Clinic opened its doors to the community. Regional Health Clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Center with 2 locations in Hammond, 1 in East Chicago and 1 in Merrillville. As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), our goal is to provide the community with affordable, accessible healthcare. We do this by offering primary health care and dental care to women, children and men. As a primary care provider, we are equipped to handle everything from temporary illnesses and injuries to the diagnosis and management of chronic illnesses like diabetes and hypertension. We also encourage our patients to take charge of their care through health education, disease prevention, immunizations, screenings and regular check-ups.
