Detection and Prevention

Recognizing that you have a mental health disorder is the first step to making a positive change in your life. Educate yourself about signs of depression, anxiety or substance use disorder. This can motivate you to seek help. 

If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of a behavioral health disorder, our Behavioral Health team can offer you support and hope. We’ll help you make a game plan to manage your condition. We’ll provide strategies to avoid stressors so you can live your life with greater enjoyment. 

How We Can Help

Accurately diagnosing a disorder is key to successfully managing it. A Miami Valley Hospital psychiatrist or counselor with advanced training will thoroughly interview and assess you. We sometimes use screening questionnaires for drug and alcohol use. This helps us consider the impact of these substances on you and any possible interactions with your prescribed medications.

Using the knowledge we gather about you, our team of counselors, psychiatrists and psychologists will help you look at your life from a new perspective. We’ll support and encourage you. We’ll teach you skills to cope better with daily life. We’ll help you to be more successful in your relationships at work and home. 

We offer outpatient programs for a wide range of behavioral disorders and an inpatient behavioral health unit if you need care in a crisis.
