Mental Health and Psychiatric Programs at Beaumont
Nearly one in five Americans has a mental health condition. Between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates in Michigan increased 32.9 percent. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the state, according to the National Institute of Mental Health and the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Beaumont is committed to addressing the mental health needs of our community.
From treating depression, anxiety and panic disorders to bipolar, psychotic and obsessive-compulsive disorders, Beaumont offers a full continuum of behavioral health care.

A new $40 million, 144-bed facility is under construction in Dearborn to expand much-needed behavioral health services for our communities.
About Our Behavioral Health Hospital
Beaumont’s new Behavioral Health Hospital, scheduled to open in the fall of 2021, will provide a full continuum of inpatient behavioral health services across the entire patient population, including specialty programs to serve adolescents, adults and older adults, and perform behavioral health assessments 24 hours a day. The facility will offer a dedicated campus in Dearborn with enhanced access and resources for navigating and for helping, healing and teaching. Programs for co-occurring behavioral health and substance use issues will also be offered to meet the unique needs of this patient population.

During hospitalization, a team of nurses, social workers, activity therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists and medical physicians are available to care for you around the clock. The inpatient program focuses on treatment that will help you move into partial
hospitalization or outpatient care as quickly as possible.
Beaumont's outpatient behavioral health services include board-certified psychiatrists who offer treatment in an office-based setting. General adult psychiatric treatments include psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. Beaumont also offers subspecialty care in geriatrics, anxiety and mood disorders, eating disorders, bipolar disorders, electroconvulsive treatment and many other specialties.
Partial Hospitalization Program
Mental illness can require more intensive help than an outpatient clinic can provide. That's where Beaumont's partial hospitalization program comes in. The program is designed to help you manage your emotional or mental illness through a combination of treatments such as individual and group therapy sessions, psycho educational programming to provide you with information about your illness and recreational therapy to help you with emotional, physical and social functioning.
