Mental Health Services & Treatment
Over 50 million people in the United States struggle with at least one mental illness, but typically less than half will get mental health treatment.1
Mental health conditions can range in severity from mild to severe, and many people struggle with symptoms from more than one mental health condition at the same time. These conditions can impact a person’s mood, thoughts, behaviors, relationships, and life in general.
Mental health conditions can also be chronic, but there is hope for a better future. If you or someone you know is struggling, you do not need to be ashamed. At Vertava Health, we offer mental health services to help people better manage their symptoms and live a full, healthy life.
Signs Someone Needs Mental Health Help
The exact cause of mental health conditions is unknown, but typically they are a result of several factors such as genetics, environment, brain function, loss, or trauma. They can also happen to anyone.
We all struggle from time to time and some may try to put on a brave face, so it can be hard to recognize when someone needs mental health treatment.
While mental health conditions can include a wide spectrum of symptoms, common warning signs of mental illness may include:
- Pulling away from friends and family
- Extreme mood changes
- Lethargy and low energy
- Excessive worrying
- Irrational or exaggerated thinking
- General feeling of being down or low
Even when someone is experiencing several symptoms, they may be hesitant to go to a mental health treatment center or seek other mental health care.
Asking for mental health help is a big first step, but we are here to guide you and your loved ones so that you can all live out your best futures.

Patients will participate in individual mental health counseling with a licensed therapist or other mental health professional. Using a variety of different therapy techniques based on their unique needs and goals, patients will explore their mental health in more depth. Behavioral therapy can help patients identify and challenge unhealthy thought patterns or behaviors that may perpetuate their condition or make their symptoms worse. Depending on the specific program and treatment plan, patients may also participate in group counseling sessions with other patients who are struggling with similar conditions.
Because mental health conditions can stem from, be exacerbated by, or negatively impact personal relationships, our ancillary mental health services include family or couples counseling as add-on programming when necessary.
We also understand that for some people treatment for mental health may require the use of medications. This type of integrated and holistic approach to mental health care may promote better clinical outcomes as well as lasting success for patients. Some of our mental health treatment facilities offer psychiatric services, but for those that do not, we will refer patients for assessment as needed.
