Mental health is a critical part of overall health and wellness. It’s important to know that mental illness can affect any one; a family member, a friend or even a coworker. Be sure to make healthy choices for both your physical and mental well-being and ask for help when needed.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, one in five people in the U.S. has a diagnosable, and treatable, mental health condition. Further, statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suggest there are millions of Americans who are experiencing emotional pain, depression or anxiety and who are not seeking or receiving treatment.

At CalvertHealth, we offer comprehensive services for individuals and families. In addition to 24-hour crisis intervention services in our emergency department, we provide inpatient care, adolescent day treatment and adult day treatment services through our partial hospitalization program (PHP).

In the emergency room, individuals are seen by a physician and a licensed social worker or psychologist. Once medical issues are ruled out by the physician, individuals are referred to inpatient, day treatment or outpatient services for treatment, as indicated.

Our inpatient unit operates 24 hours a day, click here for important information regarding our inpatient behavioral health program. Our day treatment programs (PHP) operate 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Friday for adolescents and Monday-Saturday for adults.

The programs are staffed by a board-certified psychiatrist, registered nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, occupational therapists and work in cooperation with the public school system (for adolescents). Services include individual therapy, group therapy, family or couples therapy, supportive therapy and education on illness, treatment, coping skills and relapse prevention.
