Learn about treatment for mental health disorders

Finding the right mental health treatment center can be the first step in your healing process. Once you’ve found the right treatment place, you can start to understand and manage your symptoms, forming a foundation for long-term success and happiness.

If your experience with a mental health concern is causing disruptions in your daily life, it may be time to seek professional help. For example, an inpatient treatment center could allow you to focus on healing while living in a safe and helpful place.

At a qualified inpatient treatment center, you can work with professionals such as social workers, psychiatrists, counselors and nurses to determine the therapies and services that can help you progress most effectively. These professionals can help you understand what you’re going through and work with you to develop strategies that can lead you to rediscover the joy and comfort you might feel are missing from your life.

Inpatient treatment options at our facility can allow you to take a break from the stress of work and home life as you build on your strengths and reach your mental health goals.

The benefits of mental health disorder treatment

When you have a mental health disorder, the basic things you must do daily can sometimes feel complicated and overwhelming. It can be difficult to explain what you’re going through to friends and loved ones who may be unable to relate to you. Sometimes, it can even be hard to understand your own feelings.

Therapies we use to treat mental health disorders

Mental health concerns affect everyone differently. There’s not one care plan that will address everyone’s needs; your treatment plan can be most effective when it reflects your individual goals.

Our therapies are based on reliable scientific evidence and the most cutting-edge research and can include:

  • Trauma-informed care: Mental health professionals can offer trauma-informed care, which accounts for the possibility that a patient may have experienced trauma. As our team treats the mental health concerns you have, they can follow the guiding principles of trauma-informed care, including safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment.
  • Evidence-based practices: In evidence-based practices, mental health professionals combine multiple types of research to develop a comprehensive mental health treatment plan, including scientific evidence, organizational evidence, experiential evidence and patient input.
  • Creative arts therapies: Certified creative arts therapists encourage creative expression, including writing, drawing, painting and other arts, which can help patients deal with strong emotions, increase self-awareness and decrease stress and anxiety. Along with evidence-based practices, creative arts therapies can enrich patients’ well-being and promote self-examination.

Finding the right mental health disorder treatment center

Finding a treatment center that offers the right level of care for your needs is essential. And it can be helpful to know about the care team, their philosophies and their credentials.

Consider asking the following questions:

  • What are the treatment center’s approaches, and how do they encourage ongoing healing?
  • Does the center offer help from medical professionals such as physicians and nurses?
  • Does the center offer a safe, comfortable environment? What features support success?
  • What types of behavioral health professionals offer care at the inpatient treatment center? Do they have credentials or diverse backgrounds?
  • Does the facility offer an aftercare planning process?

At Geisinger Behavioral Health, you can receive customized inpatient treatment that reflects your specific needs and goals, delivered by an experienced, compassionate, multidisciplinary team of behavioral health professionals.
