St. Anthony's Behavioral Health Hospitals in Kansas
Recognizing that physical illnesses, medications, and the psychological and social stresses of aging can complicate diagnosis and treatment of late-life psychiatric difficulties, we work with each of our patients and their families to develop an individualized plan of care. Comprehensive evaluations aimed at diagnosis and assessment of emotional, behavioral, and cognitive abilities lead to treatment plans that can be implemented in the behavioral health hospital.
Thorough psychosocial evaluations, review of medications, medical history, and current physical conditions, as well as other diagnostic procedures are provided as needed. Our behavioral health program’s multidisciplinary approach draws upon a full range of treatment methods and techniques, including psychiatric assessment, individual therapy, behavioral interventions, medication evaluation and management.
Our staff works closely with patients’ families and referrers to assure that gains made during hospitalization are maintained after discharge. We provide families with education, support, and help in determining the most appropriate next steps, including recommendations of community-based services when appropriate. We also consult with referrers while patients are in the behavioral health hospital and provide concrete treatment recommendations to implement after discharge.
