     The Will County Community Health Center is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Paul Carter, psychiatrist, and Janel Draxler, psychiatric nurse practioner, to its Behavioral Health Services team. The new team members will help the department expand its service hours and access to quality mental healthcare.

     Dr. Carter is a subspecialty trained Psychiatrist who has been in practice for more than 10 years. He trained at Northwestern University and the University of Illinois. Carter emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach and is experienced in treating patients with a wide spectrum of conditions, including Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and trauma. 

     Janel Draxler is a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, trained at University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of Texas at Austin.  Janel is passionate about eliminating health disparities amongst underserved populations.  She believes in promoting mental health through prevention, and assists her patients to manage psychiatric illnesses.
