Mental Health Problems

Mental Health is a growing concern in our community and around the country.  Many individuals suffer from a mental health issue each year, however, a lot of those individuals don’t seek the proper treatment.  According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year. Only 41% of adults in the U.S. with a mental health condition received mental health services in the past year.

Studies have also shown that a majority, 50-75%, of drug or alcohol addiction also involve a mental health component. The impact of these mental health issues can vary from mild to severe depending on the individual.

Meridian HealthCare offers both a Short Term Counseling Program, which is beneficial for those struggling with a mental health issue, and a Co-Occurring Treatment Programs to address the addiction and mental health issue simultaneously.
