Our licensed staff is on call 24 hours a day to address the mental health needs of patients and their families. We also provide a wide range of support groups that meet on a regular basis.

Outpatient care

Outpatient means care that does not require you to stay overnight. We have several outpatient programs for help with adult mental health and substance abuse concerns, and behavioral therapy to manage impulsive behavior and increase awareness of moods and emotions.

We also help people who have experienced a recent or past trauma, and may be struggling with fear, anxiety and other symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Patient Navigation help

We offer help through trained and experienced patient navigators who can connect you to the right resources. There is no charge for this service.


We offer psychiatry care and treatment to help heal and restore hope for a healthier, fuller live. Psychiatric services are available for adults, veterans, and seniors.

If you or someone you love is struggling with behavioral or mental health issues, Ascension has the care you need day or night.
