Mental Health Services
Mental health and wellbeing is integral to a person’s overall health and quality of life. According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, more than 44 million Americans suffer from a mental health disorder. And even among those who don’t—we all face challenges at different times in our lives, and mental health support can be instrumental in helping us get through difficult times.
The Lakes and Three Rivers regions have a network of mental health services provided through the collaboration of LRGHealthcare, Genesis Behavioral Health, and other local agencies and services.
Twenty-four-hour emergency psychiatric care is available at Lakes Region General Hospital through a round-the-clock call system with Genesis Behavioral Health providers. In 2006, we were pleased to begin offering that same level of coverage at Franklin Regional Hospital through a psychiatric telemedicine program.
Outpatient services are available in our region through Genesis Behavioral Health, as well as a number of qualified independent therapists. If you are seeking a mental health professional in the Lakes or Three Rivers Regions, please talk with your primary care provider, or see a list of mental health providers in this region.
At LRGH, we also provide an inpatient program for evaluating and treating elders facing mental challenges. For more information on our Senior Psychiatric Services Unit, please click the above link to read more, or call the Unit at (603) 527-7100.
