Mental Health & Wellness Program


COVID-19 UPDATE: In response to the extraordinary circumstances facing our communities, we have made adjustments in our usual programs in an effort to protect our patients, our volunteers and our staff. These actions will be reviewed weekly as the evolving situation changes. We care about you, please call us with questions. All group support sessions have been cancelled. Limited telephone support may be available for current clinic patients.

The Knox Clinic’s Mental Health & Wellness Program offers wellness education and disease management through short term counseling and community resources. 
Call 207-301-6993 to reach Judith Hatch-Orme, LCSW,  the Knox Clinic’s Mental Health and Wellness Coordinator. This program does not have a staff psychiatrist. 
What do we provide? 
• Short-term counseling with volunteer counseling providers:  the Coordinator of this program will assess your concerns and then determine with you the course of your care.

• Wellness Wednesdays: Join us at 22 White St. in Rockland from 4:15-5:30p.m. every Wednesday for reiki, chair massage, ear acupuncture and more!  Please call 207-301-6993 or visit our Knox County Health Clinic Facebook page for current offerings. 

• Complementary Medicine Practice: clinic patients have the opportunity to learn and experience healing practices such as therapeutic massage and acupuncture. Benefits can include stress reduction, reduced pain, and relief from anxiety and depression.

• Health Management: clinic patients can meet with a nurse educator to privately discuss concerns such as diabetes, cholesterol, weight issues, breathing difficulties, smoking cessation and much more. More time can be spent focusing on your health and wellness goals. 

How much does it cost?
• Many of the services are complementary - however, some providers may request a small fee for service depending on your budget. You can discuss this with the Program Coordinator.
