Mental Health

Mental Health Program

We recognize that contacting a psychiatric hospital is not an easy decision — it takes a deep level of trust and care. Cedar Hills is a facility with a warm, caring staff that want to help your loved one begin their journey to health, hope and healing. Treatment in our Mental Health unit is for people experiencing severe mental illness that impacts their ability to function safely and independently. 24 hour supervision is provided in a supportive environment to ensure peacefulness and well-being.

Our programs are designed for the stabilization and treatment of adults suffering from illness such as bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, psychosis and PTSD. In cases of severe depression, we also offer a minimally invasive procedure known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), which has shown positive clinical outcomes in the alleviation of symptoms for candidates that have previously had little to no success with therapy and/or medication.

Patients are offered group and milieu therapy in a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities and receive psychopharmacology under the care of a physician, who leads an interdisciplinary team of highly trained clinicians.

Our program provides:

  • A caring environment
  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Medication assessment, initiation and stabilization
  • Education on illness management
  • Peer learning and discovery opportunities
  • Group therapy classes centered on emotion regulation, safety and mindfulness
  • Supportive therapies for coping including art, gym access, recreation, yoga and tai chi
  • Family education and awareness groups
  • Crisis safety planning
  • Discharge planning with a master’s level therapist to help connect with resources in your community for on-going support

It can take years to develop the proper, necessary skills to recover from a crisis. Learning to manage illness is essential to long-term recovery. At the end of our inpatient program patients and their families are encouraged to engage in ongoing treatment in an outpatient setting. We want to help you get back to living a healthier, happier and ultimately more productive life.
