Illnesses that disrupt one’s life are not always physical. Mental health and emotional health issues can severely affect relationships, jobs, family and life goals. Psychological disorders can be just as debilitating as physical disease. Behavioral health specialists can help.
Fortunately, medicine and medical science have made significant advances in understanding and treating behavioral health problems. Behavioral health professionals at Scripps Health care for patients of all ages and backgrounds, with psychiatric conditions ranging from mild to severe. The treatment options available are as diverse as the patients: our programs employ a number of methods suitable to each patient’s specific situation.
Our care providers share the common goal of assisting their patients to regain control of their lives, and to reconnect with their families and community. Scripps Health’s behavioral health staff members are also active in the community, working to educate the public about mental health issues.
