Eyerly Ball COVID - 19 Updates

April 2, 2020

News of the COVID - 19 virus is constantly changing, but we want you to know that you are at the heart of everything we do. Eyerly Ball is committed to serving you, our clients. We are in this together. As the news and recommendations change daily, many organizations are taking steps to help prevent the spread of the virus and Eyerly Ball is no different. Our top priorities are the health and safety of our clients, employees, and communities. You may already be aware that we have some temporary measures in place, including:
  • All client meetings are over the phone or by telehealth (video on your phone or computer). Exceptions to phone or telehealth appointments include: clients who are in crisis or who cannot do phone visits due to mental health symptoms and those receiving injections or other sample medication.
  • Your therapist or medical provider will call you at your appointment time. If you do not answer, they will wait 5 minutes and call again. If you do not have a telephone or are limited in minutes, you are welcome to come to the clinic and use a clinic phone for your appointment.
  • New clients for the outpatient clinic are directed to register for services by telephone at 515-241-0982.
  • Outpatient office doors are open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
We are fortunate that our technologies, great employee culture, and commitment to serving our clients had put us in a position to easily make these changes with as little disruption in our services to our clients as possible. We recognize that this situation is changing rapidly, but we are here to support you.

Welcome to UnityPoint Health - Eyerly Ball Community Mental Health Services

We know true wellness is much more than physical well-being. We are committed to providing solutions that address all areas of health including mental and emotional health.

Eyerly Ball offers a full continuum of mental health services and treatment to meet the needs of our community, from family and individual counseling to outpatient care for all ages.

We ensure confidentiality is maintained at all levels of care. We provide comprehensive, effective mental health services that help achieve their optimum level of independence and success. Eyerly Ball's core focus is on outpatient, residential, community outreach, care coordination and crisis services.

Proudly serving our community for more than 50 years

In the 1960's, two Des Moines area women, Jeannette Eyerly and Elizabeth Ball, were pioneers in advocating for the mentally ill. They were committed to helping people lead productive lives within the community. Ms. Eyerly and Ms. Ball worked relentlessly, pleading with local officials, giving a voice to the helpless and paved the way for Polk County Mental Health Center, which opened in 1969.

Today that innovative solution, to what was once a neglected problem, has grown to become UnityPoint Health - Eyerly Ball, a pioneering source for outpatient, residential and community mental health services. As a leader in providing services that respond to the changing mental health needs in our community, Eyerly Ball has evolved over the years from a single outpatient clinic to include multiple clinic locations, residential facilities, community outreach programs, care coordination and crisis services. All of the services provided by Eyerly Ball aim to help our clients maintain all aspects of their well-being so that they can lead healthy, productive lives as active members of our community. 

Eyerly Ball staff are highly specialized clinicians and professionals dedicated to top quality, outcome driven services provided with exceptional care. We strive to provide the support and compassion needed to make real and lasting changes in the lives of those we serve.

Leadership

Charged with providing overall strategic direction, members of UnityPoint Health - Eyerly Ball leadership team work together to make sure only the best possible care is provided to clients and families.
