Mental Health Treatment
At Therapeutic Health Services, recovery-oriented mental health care is a journey of healing and transformation, enabling participants to live a meaningful life in their community of choice while striving to achieve their full potential. Participants in the THS program work with their counselors to create an individualized treatment plan and make their own on-going treatment decisions.
Mental health illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.
Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and borderline personality disorder. Therapeutic Health Services provides comprehensive mental health treatment with an additional focus for, but not limited to, the African- American community.

As a peer support specialist I find great comfort in the connections that I make working with consumers.

To know that another person has been there and will not judge you, can provide some relief to the isolating effects that mental health symptoms can give. I firmly believe that more..
