TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Capital Regional Behavioral Health Center announced that it is expanding it's services to offer three new programs.

These new programs include an intensive outpatient program and a partial hospitalization program for individuals with a psychiatric disorder.

A maternal mental health program is also available for women that are pregnant or have given birth in the last year and are suffering from maternal anxiety, post-partum depression, or other disorders.

All of these programs offer unique treatment sessions in a private and comfortable setting.

Meg Young, the  Director of Behavioral Health said, "This is an important level of care for the people of Tallahassee. If outpatient services are not enough to meet their needs but they don't need to be in the hospital. This can provide that level of care, support, coping skills, education, and management with a psychiatrist and nurse."

While some referrals were seen earlier Friday, services will open to the public on Nov. 1.
