Personalized psychiatric treatment for individuals 18 years and older

If you or a loved one is experiencing emotional illness, the Behavioral Health Center now offers personalized psychiatric treatment for individuals 18 years and older.  Our sixteen-bed center provides short-term comprehensive care for patients experiencing an acute psychiatric disorder or recent change in cognitive status.  An individualized treatment plan is developed by our interdisciplinary team of mental health professionals.  Some signs and symptoms that a loved one may be experiencing an emotional illness include:

  • Insomnia or too much sleep

  • Crying spells

  • Poor appetite or overeating

  • Disregard for personal appearance

  • Sad or blank look on face

  • Thoughts of suicide

  • Forgetfulness or confusion

  • Social isolation

Depression is a serious illness that needs treatment. When you need hope and direction, choose the NNRH Behavioral Health Program.


Depression and other emotional illnesses are far more common than most of us realize:

  • One in four familes has a member who will experience some for of mental illness

  • Nineteen million people will suffer from depression at some point in their lives- and 80% to 90% can be effectively treated

At the Behavioral Health Center we offer individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere where our nurses, psychiatrists and trained counselors and therapists can help your friend or loved one.  The first thing our professional team will do is a very thorough evaluation to help determine what's causing the behavioral and mental changes.  We also check for any underlying medical or biochemical origins.  We will then work with the patient, family and other health professionals, to develop a course of treatment.

Treatment includes individual meetings with psychiatrists; group therapy with other's that are struggling with similar problems; and educational programs.  Our nurses, psychiatrists, trained counselors and therapists can help with all aspects of a person's life.

To ensure excellent access and care, we offer:

  • FREE confidential initial consultation to help determine the appropriate level of care

  • Appropriate discharge care to ensure that the improvements made are long-lasting

  • Management of a patient's secondary medical needs
