Mental Health Care at Lukner Medical Clinic, PLLC: A Comprehensive Guide


At Lukner Medical Clinic, PLLC, we understand that mental health is critical to overall health and well-being. As a primary care provider, we play a pivotal role in the early detection, treatment, and management of mental health conditions. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of our mental health care services, focusing on screening tools, common conditions, treatment options, and the referral process.

Screening Tools

Screening for mental health conditions is a crucial first step in identifying patients who may need further evaluation and treatment. At Lukner Medical Clinic, we utilize several validated tools for this purpose, including the Mental Health Inventory-5 (MHI-5) and the World Health Organization-Five (WHO-5), which screen for depression and anxiety[9].

Common Conditions

Mental disorders are prevalent, with estimates indicating that 50% of the population experience at least one mental disorder in their lifetime, and at least 25% have suffered a mental disorder in the past year[7]. The most common mental health conditions we encounter at Lukner Medical Clinic include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and substance dependence[9].

Treatment Options

Treatment for mental health conditions is multifaceted and often involves a combination of psychotherapy, medication, and other therapies. At Lukner Medical Clinic, we offer counseling and mental health support to help our patients find better mental wellness and improve their quality of life[9]. We also refer patients to specialists, including psychiatrists, when necessary for additional care[9].

Substance Dependence

Substance dependence is a significant concern that we address at Lukner Medical Clinic. As a BeWell provider, we offer comprehensive care for substance use and mental health, in-person and virtually, anywhere in the state, regardless of ability to pay[7]. Our physicians prescribe various evidence-based medications such as buprenorphine-naltrexone (e.g., Suboxone) and other medications if needed to aid in a patient's recovery journey[7].


At Lukner Medical Clinic, PLLC, we are committed to providing comprehensive mental health care to our patients. Our team of dedicated professionals, led by Dr. Ralf B. Lukner, MD, PhD, offers compassionate and understanding support throughout the treatment process, ensuring the highest quality of care[1]. We understand that each person's lifestyle and environment can significantly affect their health, so we strive to identify and address any potential underlying problems that may contribute to their condition[1]. If you or a loved one is struggling with a mental health issue or substance dependence, please reach out to us. We are here to help.
