Depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, mood disorders and other mental health issues can affect a person’s day-to-day functioning, thinking and physical health. For some, these problems can become so disruptive to one’s life that inpatient care is required to keep them safe while they begin treatment with a team of psychiatric specialists.
Temple’s Behavioral Health team works every day to stabilize people in psychiatric crisis and to equip them with the skills and treatment they need to manage their mental health and improve their quality of life.
