You’re Not Alone on Your Mental Health Journey

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

When life leaves you feeling overwhelmed, Sanford Behavioral Health is here to offer support. We provide counseling and inpatient care to patients with a variety of mental health conditions. If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, psychological or emotional stress, we can help.

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

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.

Help is available. If you’re thinking about suicide or self-harm, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline now to get support.


Mental Health Care Services

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

Inpatient care is medical care that happens in a hospital. We treat patients with severe symptoms that need to be monitored by health professionals.

Outpatient care means that patients 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 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. During the day, you will go to a facility where you receive treatment but can go home at night.

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

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