The Iberville Mental Health Clinic has relocated to the Plaquemine Public Health Unit at 24705 Plaza Drive in Plaquemine.

Hours are Tuesdays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

"We are truly appreciative to Iberville Parish President J. Mitchell Ourso, Jr. for the parish's generosity and responsiveness in relocating the mental health clinic into the Health Unit," noted Jan Kasofsky, Executive Director of the Capital Area Human Services District (CAHSD).

Kasofsky said the Iberville Mental Health Clinic is one of CAHSD's largest satellite clinics, and serves about 160 clients. The new location provides numerous benefits including a convenient location for clients in a complex with the Social Security office, public health, and the medical complex; a spacious new building with better privacy, waiting areas and offices, and improved security.
