THE BRONX - Bronx residents in need of mental health services can now visit the new Integrated Wellness Center at Lincoln Hospital.

The new Wellness Center is the first in the borough to combine both primary care and behavioral health services for adult psychiatric patients. The program was made possible through a $1.6 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

One patient who chose to remain anonymous told News 12 that she believes with these new services and increased education, that people are becoming more accepting and understanding of people with mental illness.

The Wellness Center accepts both insured and uninsured patients.
