Behavioral Health

Compassionate care to help you find calm and satisfaction

Behavioral Health at Mount Auburn Hospital

At Mount Auburn Hospital, we believe your behavioral health is just as important as your physical health. And we know the mind plays a critical role in your overall well-being. If you don't feel well emotionally, your body can also suffer. Combining behavioral health and medical care can help empower you to make healthy choices.

We also believe a team approach works best for behavioral health care. Our highly skilled registered nurses, social work staff and psychiatrists work together to provide specialized behavioral health treatment. You'll have a supportive and compassionate team on your side as we address your concerns.
