You're Not Alone

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

When life leaves you feeling overwhelmed, Sanford Behavioral Health is here to help you cope. We provide counseling or inpatient care if you're struggling with anxiety, depression, psychological and emotional stress or behavioral needs.

Our psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and psychiatric nurses work with you in individual and group settings.

Some of our featured specialties include:

Psychiatry: A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who focuses on treating mental health conditions.

Psychology: Psychologists are mental health professionals who diagnose, assess and treat mental health conditions.

Counseling: Sanford Behavioral Health offers counseling, also called talk therapy, for individuals, families and couples.

Chemical Dependency: Chemical dependency, or addiction, is an illness that requires both psychological and physical care.

Eating Disorders: Eating disorders have physical and psychological symptoms that can turn life-threatening.


Treatment Programs for Mental Health Care

Sanford Behavioral Health offers behavioral health treatment in inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization settings.

Inpatient care is medical care that happens in a hospital, if your symptoms are severe enough that you need to be monitored by health professionals.

Outpatient care means that you come to a facility to receive treatment, and leave when the procedure, therapy or testing is complete.

Partial hospitalization programs are in between inpatient and outpatient care. If you are at a point where you do not need to be monitored 24 hours a day by health care professionals, but cannot live completely independently, you may participate in a PHP. This means that during the day, you come to a facility where you receive treatment and therapies, but you go home at night.

Sanford Behavioral Health offers all three of these programs, so you can have the level of treatment you need.

You are not alone. When you need compassionate support, Sanford Behavioral Health is here for you.
