About Us


In 2009, Brett Gurkin, MD and Chris Myers, MD opened Physician Alliance for Mental Health LLC to offer a full range of services to support individuals in our community.  Dr. Gurkin and Dr. Myers share an interest in community mental health care and have worked together since their residency training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Combining community interventions with psychiatric care will help insure that clients receive the full spectrum of care that they need to support them in their journey of recovery.

Physician Alliance for Mental Health (PAMH) is comprised of professionals that share the desire to provide mental health and substance abuse services to individuals in the community.  Dr. Gurkin and Dr. Myers specialize in the treatment of severe, persistent mental illness population.  PAMH employs two full time psychiatrists, licensed psychological associate, licensed professional associates, licensed clinical social workers, qualified professionals, associate professionals, paraprofessionals, registered nurses, certified medical assistants and administrative support staff.

PAMH strives to provide a continuum of care to adults, children, adolescents, and families in New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties.   PAMH is physician-owned and operated, and offers both basic and enhanced services.  PAMH offers services based on medical necessity for each individual consumer. Intakes will be set up with our Intake Coordinator to determine each individualís needs.  A Comprehensive Clinical Assessment (CCA) will be completed to determine appropriate level of care, if necessary.
