Alabama Psychiatry, a division of River Region Psychiatry Associates, which also operates Kentucky Psychiatry and Tennessee Psychiatry, was founded by Dr. Shankar Yalamanchili (Dr. Chili) in 2008. Headquartered in Montgomery Alabama. Alabama Psychiatry operates 7 outpatient clinics in the state of Alabama with more on the way. Our team of Psychiatrist, Psychologists (PHd’s), Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners (CRNP’s), Licensed Clinic Social Workers (LICSW’s) and office staff tend to the needs of our patients both in clinic and in one of 13 hospitals across the state which we service. Since the foundation of his practice, Dr. Chili’s vision has been to improve access to mental health care to those who need it most, when they need it most. Dr. Chili believes in the power of the mind-body connection, and that our mental health impacts our whole wellbeing. Because of this belief, Alabama Psychiatry’s mental health services have expanded to include outpatient offices, hospitals, and mental health centers in cities across the state of Alabama. We embrace the diversity of each community that we are a part of and seek to serve each patient as a whole person, not just treating symptoms.
