Our Services

Mount Carmel Behavioral Health’s programming overview

Mount Carmel Behavioral Health’s inpatient behavioral health services provide acute care for adults over the age of 18 who are suffering from psychiatric concerns such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and more. We utilize a host of evidence-based modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapies, and brief therapies, as foundational elements of our plans.  

The residential care setting provides 24/7 supervision and support for patients who require intensive care as they stabilize and progress in recovery. This time away from the stressors and chaos of everyday life can be a wonderful time to focus fully on healing and setting goals for the road ahead.

Compassionate, individualized care

When a patient arrives at our center, we conduct a thorough assessment of their presenting concerns to gain a clear picture of how best to meet their needs. We inquire about their past and present challenges and seek to understand what might be causing their distress.  

Using this information, we craft a customized plan that reflects each person’s individual challenges and needs. This plan will evolve throughout your time at Mount Carmel Behavioral Health, and your team will consult with you and seek your feedback as we prepare for your eventual discharge.
