Mental Health Services
The mental health services provided by Allegiance Health include crisis and referral services, specialized testing and inpatient care. This caring treatment is based specifically on the unique needs of each individual. While some disorders may be treated with therapy, mild medications or other outpatient options, more severe cases may require partial or full hospitalization.
Outpatient Mental Health
Individual, family, and group counseling, psychiatric evaluation and medication management for a wide range of conditions, including:
- Anxiety Disorders – An anxiety disorder isn’t just a case of “nerves.” Such symptoms can result from an illness that keeps you from coping and disrupts your daily life.
- Depression – Clinical depression is more than just the “blues,” such as normal emotional experiences of sadness, loss or passing mood states. Clinical depression is persistent and can interfere significantly with your ability to function.
- Phobias - An intense fear of an object, event or feeling that can interrupt your ability to carry out normal daily activities.
- Eating Disorders – Psychological illness in which a person becomes obsessed with food and body weight.
- Bipolar Disorder – Sometimes known as manic-depressive disorder, these are mental illnesses in which a person’s mood swings from overly “high” and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, with periods of normal mood in between.
- Childhood and Adolescent Disorders – Children and their families struggling with issues such as substance abuse, hyperactivity, depression and anxiety.
- Grief and Loss – Feelings of loss that become overwhelming requiring more support than can be effectively provided by friends and family.
- Marital/Relationship Conflict – Assistance for those experiencing serious difficulty dealing with daily life and activities due to relationship conflict.
For individuals who feel overwhelmed by depression or anxiety who need more treatment than weekly therapy can provide. This program allows the individual to participate in daily therapy while returning home at night.
Safe, secure care for those experiencing severe symptoms of mental illness or crisis. A variety of therapeutic experiences are used to assist in the stabilization of symptoms while keeping the patient safe.
