Peachtree Comprehensive Health’s Mission Statement
Since 1996, Peachtree Comprehensive Health (formerly Peachtree Psychiatric Professionals, P.C.) has practiced quality psychiatric care in Atlanta. Over the past 24 years, we have successfully integrated the growing need for specialized behavioral treatment with medical treatment to meet our patients’ mental health needs. We are pleased to offer the following standards of clinical care:
Evidence based treatment is at the core of Peachtree Comprehensive Health. We believe in the importance of delivering treatment that has been shown to be effective for each patient’s concerns. Consistent with the evidence-based model, PCH treatment practices are informed by current research findings in the area.
The Specialist Model
PCH uses the specialist rather than the generalist model of care. PCH clinicians are trained in particular specialty areas and continuing education, seek any needed supervision, and follow relevant research findings in those areas. As such, PCH clinicians are qualified to work with patients who seek treatment for those concerns. For example, if if a patient suffers from a heart issue, it would be most effective to see a cardiologist. Similarly, if one struggles with trauma, we recommend working with a trauma specialist. If none of the PCH clinicians have expertise that fits the need of a patient, we are happy to make a referral to an expert outside of the clinic who specializes in the needed treatment.
At PCH, we understand that genuine, lasting change comes most readily from authentic, compassionate therapeutic relationships. We believe that the therapeutic relationship is a real relationship and work to honor it. We focus on balancing acceptance and a non-judgmental approach with encouragement and accountability to help patients reach their goals. PCH clinicians strive to give our patients skills they need to find fulfillment, connection, and authenticity in who they are.
Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Peachtree Comprehensive Health values and respects individual differences. We appreciate the various identities (and their intersection) that make us unique individuals, such as those related to race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion, spirituality, family composition, and many other dimensions.We understand that every one of us lives and functions within a broader social environment and that our interactions with others can be helpful or harmful to our well-being. We know some identities can be devalued by our social environment, as is the case with racism, sexism, genderism, ageism, heterosexism, ableism, etc. These experiences can impact how we feel about ourselves and others. PCH clinicians and staff invite conversations about these issues because we understand that they can impact well-being. Our values and ethics guide us to support equality and human dignity and challenge prejudice and discrimination. Our staff is dedicated to making Peachtree Comprehensive Health a safe, respectful, and compassionate place for everyone.
