Mental Health Treatment Program
A mental disorder is a complex psychological condition that affects a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Despite an estimated one in five people in the United States who are said to be dealing with some form of mental illness in any given year, mental health conditions and their treatment are still widely misunderstood.
