When it Matters Most
Expert care for mental and emotional health
Illnesses aren't always physical.
Sometimes mental health and emotional health issues can make it difficult to function in a healthy way. Psychological disorders can severely affect your job, family and friend relationships, and life goals. Left untreated, mental and emotional health distress can lead to chronic illness, long-term disability, aggression and harm.
Behavioral health specialists at Community Healthcare System can help patients regain control of their lives.
Our highly qualified and skilled interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, social workers, case workers and advanced practice nurses offer a contemporary approach to psychiatric inpatient and outpatient care at St. Catherine Hospital for adults and older adults with conditions that include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar and obsessive compulsive disorder
- Mood and personality disorders
- Trauma-related disorders
- Schizophrenia and treatment-resistant psychiatric disorders
Your care and support team
Though a healing environment and evidence-based psychotherapy, our mental health team works with the patient to pinpoint the cause of cognitive and emotional distress; and develop an appropriate course of treatment. Our treatment options are as diverse as our patients.
Community Healthcare System's specialized behavioral health services for adults and older adults include:
- Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)
- Geriatric psychiatry
- Ketamine therapy
- Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) - a new alternative technology to treat severe depression
Some patients may need an inpatient care program temporarily to address acute or chronic neurological, mood or emotional disorders. Others may benefit from an intensive outpatient program to achieve their recovery goals.
Additionally, our care team assist can help patients connect with valuable resources to strike a better balance at home and in the community.
