Behavioral and mental health disorders are more common than we might think. In fact, they affect about one in five persons in the United States. Fortunately, disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety are often highly treatable. Medication and therapy can improve the lives of most people with these conditions.
Lakewood Health System offers various behavioral and mental health programs and services. They include clinic behavioral health services, the Reflections Intensive Inpatient program, and nursing home consultations.
One of the many benefits of working with a behavioral health professional at Lakewood Health System is the close working relationship they have with our staff of medical providers. They work in the same clinic and communicate as necessary about patients’ diagnoses and treatments while ensuring careful attention to confidentiality. This allows all our patients a continuity of care with an emphasis on best practices when receiving care at Lakewood.
