Personalising Access to Mental Health Care

In a world that predominantly offers standardized solutions, Being Health stands out as a mental health care provider catering to individuals seeking a genuinely personalized approach. This approach acknowledges the interconnectedness of the mind and body in influencing overall well-being. Being Health adopts a comprehensive strategy, granting access to a wide range of evidence-based treatments for individuals grappling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress.

Founded and led by Dr. Allie Sharma, a psychiatrist with training from Cornell, Being Health’s care team comprises a diverse group of professionals. This includes psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), functional medicine physicians, nutritionists, acupuncturists, and care advocates. Together, they collaborate to deliver exceptional patient care, with a focus on achieving improved outcomes.

Being Health’s contemporary mental health practice, overseen by Medical Director Dr. Hudson Elmore, is characterized by empathetic clinicians and a commitment to clinical excellence. The integration of various disciplines within the same organization allows the team to work collaboratively, tailoring care to individual needs and fostering the potential for optimized mental health outcomes.

“We are combining the best of what is tried and tested in psychiatry with what is new and novel in our field,” said Dr. Allie Sharma, Being Health co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. “More and more Americans are grappling with mental health conditions, with far too many feeling overwhelmed by the burden of navigating their own care. At Being Health we’ve created a modern mental health practice that seamlessly incorporates a diversity of therapeutic approaches including, for example, ketamine infusion therapy for treatment resistant depression or functional medicine combined with nutritional support to optimize both health and mental health outcomes, which we know are inextricably linked.”
