Severe and persistent mental illness.
Family and relationship problems.

Sometimes it's difficult to point at what hurts.

At Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, we approach behavioral health as a team to provide the highest-quality, most comprehensive care from the time of diagnosis throughout our highly individualized treatment plans.

Our group of specialists is among the best that can be found anywhere. The team spans a wide range of disciplines, from board-certified psychiatrists and psychologists to licensed clinical social workers, certified substance abuse counselors and clinical nurse specialists.

What it comes down to are the needs and preferences of each individual member, and our ability to provide the care that is the most comfortable and effective for them.

Not only are all of our psychiatrists board-certified, which is unique in Hawaii, many are also certified in subspecialty care, such as Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry, and Addiction Medicine. This ensures that all of our members receive the highest level of clinical expertise and directly benefit from the most recent advances in medical and behavioral science.

What it comes down to are the needs and preferences of each individual member, and our ability to provide the care that is the most comfortable and effective for them.

Our counseling services have been distinguished as the best of the best in Hawaii for four years in a row.
