Page Content

Mental illness affects our thinking and feelings, making it difficult to function in our everyday lives. We want you to know there is hope. Recovery is possible.

At Hunt Regional Healthcare's Behavioral Health Unit, we offer comprehensive services for individuals and families seeking mental illness treatment. Our inpatient psychiatric unit is a therapeutic, patient-centered and sensitive environment where patients can achieve wellness and a higher quality of life.

Our Inpatient Treatment Approach

Patients at Hunt Regional receive passionate and private care for a variety of mental health issues, offered by our experienced team of medical and mental health professionals. We use a cohesive approach to provide patients with quality care and to help them attain their goals and independence. Our interdisciplinary team members work in collaboration with one another throughout the entire process, from determining the diagnosis to carrying out the inpatient treatment program.

And not one patient receives the same treatment as another – every treatment program is specialized to meet an individual’s distinct needs. Throughout the process, a patient’s goals and needs may change. To ensure the treatment regimen is still pertinent over time, a physician carefully oversees each component of mental illness treatment, which may include:

  • Individual, group and family therapy on a variety of topics
  • Marriage and couples therapy
  • Therapeutic recreation
  • Patient and family education on a variety of topics
    • Mental illness
    • Treatment
    • Coping skills
    • Relapse prevention
  • Daily activities
  • Medication adjustment and monitoring
  • Behavior modification

We understand the emotional distress that a mental illness can put on patients as well as those who love them. We encourage families, caregivers and primary care physicians to participate in the treatment process and to help identify problems and solutions. Concerned family members are encouraged to contact the Behavioral Health Unit at 903-408-1500 for referral advice.
