Behavioral Health Center
What We Treat
A behavioral disorder is a condition that affects a person’s thinking, feelings, or mood. It may result from genetics, environment, and lifestyle. It may affect an individual’s ability to relate to others and function in daily life. But most people can overcome their behavioral health conditions to have fulfilling social and professional lives. What’s important is identifying the condition early and commencing treatment as soon as possible.
Grady treats behavioral illnesses, including depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, and co-occurring substance use.
Every hospital treats patients. At Grady, we strive to treat them better, more efficiently and more effectively. Our mission to care for all who need us attracts behavioral health specialists from across the nation, and most are employed by Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine. They are drawn here by the knowledge that we test the limits of medicine by innovating existing standards of care, researching cutting-edge drugs and therapies, and exploring novel treatments.
Our zeal for innovation has given Grady a national reputation for medical advancement in areas like behavioral health, heart disease, cancer, burns, and other conditions cared for by specialists in our centers of excellence. Access to all of these accredited practices is available to every Grady patient.
