Behavioral Health Services

Meeting the needs of our patients and the community

College Medical Center offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs for individuals 18 years and older.

Our mission is to create a safe and therapeutic environment to provide crisis intervention and stabilization for individuals suffering from acute psychiatric symptoms.

Our units offer structured, multidisciplinary psychiatric treatment programs comprised of intensive treatment, recreational therapy, social services, educationally focused groups and discharge planning.

Each client is under the care and supervision of a psychiatrist who provides evaluation, individual therapy and medication management. The multidisciplinary approach to the management of psychiatric (AdultGeriatric) illnesses and the milieu assists the client in achieving a healthier mental status and optimal level of functioning.
