Contracting Providers

Our model

unitē Mental Health and Wellness is looking for mental health providers to work in our office or remotely via telehealth.  In early 2021, unitē was established with a vision of providing specialty mental health care to underserved rural communities.  Individuals in need can come to our office to receive care in a private and welcoming location.  Mental health support staff will be on site to assist with the delivery of all services, whether in-person or through telehealth. This ensures smooth delivery of care, as well as client privacy and peace of mind for remote providers who can't be on location with their patients/clients.   

We want to give practitioners freedom

When you work with us, you choose your schedule and we take care of the administrative tasks that steal away from both your personal time and your time with your patients/clients.  Let us handle your business needs such as advertising, liability insurance, bookkeeping, billing insurance, collecting payments and more.    

What you can expect
