A mental health clinical office has opened inside the Carrollton, Texas, Walmart location to make mental health care more accessible and routine. Dr. Russ Petrella, CEO of Beacon Health Options, wants to meet people where they already are and already have relationships, places that are part of their daily routine. He’s hoping opening a mental health clinic in a Walmart will be less intimidating for people. Petrella hopes to de-stigmatize mental health and make it more like physical health treatment. The Walmart is staffed with a clinical social worker who treats stressors like anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues.
