Fremont Health's Behavioral Health outpatient clinic is a comprehensive mental wellness clinic offering psychiatric evaluation and medication management; mental health assessment; and individual, family and group therapy for patients age two through adulthood. Patients do not need a physician referral to receive these outpatient services.
Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from depression. A stressful life event, genetics, physical illness, medications, drug or alcohol abuse, or hormone levels can trigger an episode of depression.
Fremont Health's inpatient behavioral health center features 20 private patient rooms for persons ages 19 and older. It is physically separated into two distinct units — one for adult patients, and the other for geriatric patients. These units provide acute care to voluntary and involuntary patients in a safe and therapeutic environment, while maintaining the highest level of patient privacy, dignity and confidentiality.
Mental illnesses are not the result of personal weakness or lack of character, they are biologically-based brain disorders, and willpower alone is not the solution.
One in four adults experience some sort of mental health disorder, and although many are treatable with medication and through behavioral therapy, psychosocial treatment, and support groups, millions of Americans don't seek treatment.
Fremont Health offers a number of support groups that offer support, understanding, and helpful information.
If a member of your immediate family developed chronic severe depression before age 31, you have a greater likelihood of being diagnosed with depression as well.
An analysis of more than 600 people and their families from around the United States suggested the odds are greater than two to one that people with close relatives who have chronic severe depression will also suffer from it.
Scientists have long known that major depression runs in families, but this research was designed to see whether some subtypes of depression have a stronger family association. The study results suggests that chronic severe depression could have a genetic link, but it could also be due to a family catastrophe such as the early death of a parent or physical and/or sexual abuse.
