Aspire Mental Health opens outpatient facility in East Liverpool

Morgan Ahart NOW OPEN — Jennifer Joseph, left, and Melody Gill have strived to create a calming, welcoming space at Aspire Mental Health in East Liverpool.

EAST LIVERPOOL — Aspire Mental Health is excited to provide care and understanding to the community.

“I want people to know this is a safe place. No matter what is weighing you down, or what you’re going through, you can come to us for care, understanding, and no judgment,” said Jennifer Joseph, psychiatric health practitioner and owner of Aspire Mental Health.

Aspire is a nurse practitioner owned and operated outpatient mental health facility that began seeing patients age 5 through adult Aug. 1. Aspire offers medication management, case management and counseling services, with in-person and telehealth options available. Aspire offers a wide treatment range including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and other mental health disorders.

While Aspire is currently a two-woman show run by Joseph and Melody Gill, the office manager, it already is planning for growth, and will be offering more services, and accept more providers as their staff expands. Among the programs Aspire hopes to provide is a meditation course taught by Amy McCormack of Always Mindful Yoga. Aspire can also provide referrals for client needs, and work with other area providers to ensure their clients are properly cared for.

Aspire is also experienced in addiction medicine, and can offer referrals for detox, inpatient, residential and outpatient care as needed. Aspire offers case management services and plans on offering free meditation classes this fall. Telehealth services are available.

“If we don’t have the resources you need, Melody will find them for you, and make sure you have them. We will always make sure our clients are taken care of,” said Joseph.

Aspire takes all major insurance providers including Ohio Medicaid and Medicare.

Aspire has already begun scheduling appointments and can be contacted at (330) 932-1823, or you can make an appointment in person between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday at 236 W. 6th St., East Liverpool43920.
