Worth County’s access to mental health, addictive disease and developmental disability services just got easier

SYLVESTER, Ga. – Worth County Health Department and Aspire Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Services are teaming up to make it easier and more convenient for Worth County residents to access affordable, quality mental health addictive disease and developmental disability services offered by skilled professionals.
“Beginning April 13, we will begin offering services to the Worth County community in a space being made available at the Worth County Health Department,” said Aspire Executive Director Kay Brooks. “This new partnership will allow us to enhance services we already offer in Worth County.”
Aspire will start off seeing patients on Thursdays at the health department, located at 1012 West Franklin Street, but expects to expand to Tuesdays and Thursdays fairly quickly, said Aspire Chief Clinical Officer Dana P. Glass.
“Services will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in most instances,” she said.
Patients will be referred to receive Aspire services.
“This is an exciting time for our Worth County community,” said Worth County Health Department Nurse Manager Gina Connell. “Housing Aspire at the health department brings Public Health and Behavioral Health together under one roof, making it easier and more convenient for patients to access a broad spectrum of care and a variety of services.”
