Psychiatric illnesses such as depression and anxiety disorders and bipolar disorder are common in our society. In fact, an estimated 61.5 million Americans 18 years and older experience a diagnosable mental illness in a given year.
The National Institute of Mental Health indicates that a little more than 20 percent of youth (or one in five), either currently or at some point during their lives, have had a seriously debilitating mental disorder. The need for treatment is evident, yet fewer than half of these individuals seek treatment.
That is why CenterPointe Hospital of Columbia is dedicated to providing access to quality care, comprehensive services in a safe, nurturing environment that is conducive to healing and recovery, and an extensive continuum that offers progressively less-restrictive levels of care as patients progress through treatment and learn to manage the illnesses that affect their lives.
