Behavioral Health Outpatient Center Change Location

Welcome to Our Park Place Center

We understand that behavioral health issues can be every bit as debilitating as physical trauma. At Grady, you’ll find unparalleled expertise and experience to help individuals through their challenges.

Our multidisciplinary behavioral health team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, people with lived experience, and other experts who care for our patients. The staff of Grady’s Behavioral Health team has been at the leading edge of research leading to advances in treating patients with trauma, mental illness, and schizophrenia. Our research has been sponsored by the National Institute of Health and other organizations.

We are one of only a handful of U.S. hospitals staffed by multidisciplinary behavioral health specialists from two medical schools. Our physicians are faculty members of Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine. Because behavioral health issues are often accompanied by other health concerns, Grady offers one more advantage: We’ve spent more than 125 years building the most comprehensive medical services in Atlanta to deliver the best care possible.

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.
