Behavioral health

Dedicated to helping our patients get back to their lives.

Choosing a behavioral healthcare provider is a very personal and important decision. Patients who come to Community find hope and health as they face anxiety, depression, addiction, or other mental health disorders.

As central Indiana's largest provider of mental health services, Community’s behavioral health services offers an extensive continuum of treatment options.

Our health care team sees more than 4,700 inpatient stays and 19,000 outpatient visits a year. Patients range from age four to senior adults and may be seen in individual, family, or group therapy.

The Seasons unit features a 12-bed unit and focuses on geriatric patients age 65 with a variety of behavioral care management problems due to psychiatric disorders.

Nurses on the unit collaborate with physicians, psychologists, therapists and counselors to evaluate and develop personal treatment plans for each patient. They have an innate concern for others and truly understand what it means to care for patients. They are nonjudgmental, patient, and exhibit the ability to effectively use critical thinking skills.

RNs stay with behavioral care because they like working with mentally challenged patients and enjoy the spirit of teamwork that comes from collaborating with a close-knit group of employees.

As a result of such closeness, exceptional patient experiences occur everyday because nurses offer patients the kind of care that family and friends may find difficult to understand.
