Adult Behavioral Care

Risk Factors

Adults can hurt, too. One in five Americans live with a mental health disorder. Estimates indicate that about 2/3 of all people do not seek treatment for fear of disclosure or rejection. Mental illness is a disease just like any other disease (cancer, diabetes). It is treatable and people do get better. Feelings of depression and anxiety are common, especially when associated with a life situation that seems impossible to deal with. We can help.
