Updated: Oct 7, 2019

Vero Beach, FL –

The Mental Health Association in Indian River County is excited to announce expansion of our psychiatry services to meet our community’s needs and welcome new member Dr. Cara Yergen, MD, FAPA. Dr. Yergen is a board-certified psychiatrist born and raised in Massachusetts. She completed her residency training at the Institute of Living at Hartford Hospital and spent her final year in residency as the chief psychiatry resident.


Dr. Yergen has been practicing Psychiatry in Florida since 2009 and she has practiced in many different settings, giving her a solid well-rounded knowledge and experience base. She is a diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and has been granted recognition as a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Yergen’s patients describe her as down-to-earth and approachable and report they feel comfortable confiding in her. She uses medications in a conservative manner and her philosophy in prescribing is to maintain patients on the least amount of medication necessary to achieve a positive effect. She minimizes the use of addictive prescription psychiatric medication as much as possible.


Dr. Coppola, CEO of the MHA is looking forward to having Dr. Yergen on board. “Dr. Yergen’s experience will be invaluable to our clients and company. She truly cares about her patients and is an excellent addition to our team,” said Dr. Coppola.
