Mental Health Care Right Here in our Region

An underwriting gift to ARTcetera will help champion vital mental health services by supporting access to a comprehensive continuum that includes multiple levels of care, including:

  • Adult Inpatient Mental Health: This program provides psychiatric care to those 18 years of age and older who need a safe, therapeutic environment where they can develop their own personalized plan to achieve their highest level of mental, physical, social and spiritual well-being.
  • Adolescent Inpatient Mental Health: Like adults, children and adolescents can have mental health disorders that interfere with the way they think, act and feel. And just like physical health, mental health is important at every stage of life.
  • Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Programming takes place at Amberwing. This kind of comprehensive, short-term, intensive, clinical care is a step below inpatient hospitalization, but more concentrated than traditional outpatient care. Individuals in partial hospitalization programs attend structured daytime programming for a period of about three weeks. Follow-up and refresher care is available. Other Amberwing programs include Birth – Kindergarten Assessments and short-term intensive outpatient programming for emerging adults designed to help young people, ages 18-26, who are struggling with mental health and substance use issues.
  • Adult Partial Hospitalization Program: This kind of comprehensive, short-term, intensive, clinical care is a step below inpatient hospitalization, but more concentrated than traditional outpatient care, such as individual counseling. Individuals in partial hospitalization programs attend structured programming throughout the day, three to five days a week, and return home in the evenings.

These programs save lives. And with your help, these services will always be available to meet the varied and growing needs of even our most complex patients. Ensuring access to quality mental health care embodies compassion, dignity of the person and hope. With your help, we can bring mental health care to the next level.
