Psychiatric Services

Baptist Health Counseling has a full range of psychiatric services devoted to helping our patients live an emotionally fulfilling life. Information about these services and how to access them can be obtained from our 24-hour Access Center.


Encouraging healthy changes and personal growth is the focus of all treatment programs. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your specific needs.

  • Inpatient psychiatric care is provided in our Crisis Management Unit where programs are structured to meet your needs according to your age and level of illness.
  • Partial hospitalization allows you to spend your evenings at home with care provided during the day.
  • Intensive outpatient care involves sessions scheduled up to three hours a day for a maximum of five days a week.
  • Outpatient care may be best for you. Individual, family, couples and group counseling are available.

Family involvement

Your family plays a vital role in your care and recovery. We also offer family and couples therapy to help you restore, normalize and enhance your family relationship.

A team approach to care

The Baptist Health Counseling staff is here to help you, with psychiatrists, mental health therapists, nurses, chaplains, a recreational therapist, social workers and an expressive therapist working together to help you recover.

Signs of a crisis

Recognizing the signs of mental health crisis can be difficult, but factors that may indicate a problem include:

  • Change in appetite; increase or decrease in weight
  • Increase or decrease in sleep
  • Unexplainable increase in moodiness and jumpiness
  • Difficulty in thinking and concentrating
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities
  • Fatigue and loss of energy
  • Sense of hopelessness
  • Feeling unreal or disconnected

These are just some of the possible signs of emotional illness. One or more of these may also be caused by a physical illness. Please consult a professional. We suggest you check with your health insurance provider regarding your plan's coverage of mental health services.
