Midwest Psychiatric Center, Inc. is a private psychiatric practice owned by my colleague, Dr. Rakesh Kaneria.  I provide therapy to adults and a small number of children/adolescents at this location.  We can accept most commercial insurances, as well as Caresource (of Ohio Medicaid) and Medicare.  Adult clients who work with me at MPC also have the option to see Dr. Kaneria for evaluation and medication management if desired or needed.  Child psychiatric evaluation and medication management are not available with MPC.    We are located in West Chester, OH near the UC West Chester Hospital, just off I-75, between Liberty Way. and Tylersville Rd.

Take the Pledge to Reduce Stigma!

stigmaFree

Did you know that approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.7 million, or 18.6%—experiences mental illness in a given year? (National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2012) That’s a pretty high percentage! When I hear my clients describe feeling “alone” or “bizarre”, I wish society could help them feel less isolated – because the truth is, if you’re struggling with a mental illness you really AREN’T alone!

For Mental Health Month 2015, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is especially focusing on the task of reducing the stigma of mental illness.

As a community, we can work to reduce the stigma of mental illness. We can educate ourselves, engage in dialogue, and ask questions. We can make an effort to see the person, not the illness. We can share our stories.
As a part of the Stigma Free Campaign, NAMI is inviting individuals, companies, and organizations to take a pledge to work to reduce that stigma of mental illness.

You can take the pledge at : http://www.nami.org/stigmafree.

It’s a great opportunity to get involved, educate yourself, and take a stand!
