Adult Treatment Services

A mental illness is a condition that affects a person's thinking, feeling or mood. Such conditions may affect someone's ability to relate to others and function each day.  One in 5 adults experience a mental health condition every year. One adult in 17 lives with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. In addition to a person directly experiencing a mental illness, family, friends and communities are also affected.  For more information about mental illnesses visit: http://nami.org/Learn-More/Mental-Health-Conditions.
