Senior Adults Mental Health Treatment Services

The senior adult program is for older adults facing senior adult mental health issues unique to the aging process. We help seniors learn to address and cope with the challenges they face at this stage of life. The geriatric psychiatric clinical staff working with the senior adult population understands the importance of involving families and other healthcare providers to ensure that progress made in treatment is monitored and sustained following participation in one of our programs.

  • Suicidal thoughts or actions or thoughts of death
  • Depression
  • Withdrawn behavior
  • Physical acting out towards self, others or objects
  • Mood swings
  • Alcohol addiction and/or drug abuse
  • Inability to cope with problems and daily activities

If you recognize any of the above symptoms, our qualified team of mental health professionals are available at all times to determine the most appropriate level of care for each individual. All clients will receive an opportunity to connect with a treatment provider that best suits their needs.
