- Why Choose Sharp?
Sharp HealthCare’s Mental Health Services offers a treatment approach that emphasizes coordination of all aspects of your care. Our goal is to make sure that all patients receive the best possible care in the most appropriate setting, utilizing the education, support and therapy that is provided within our programs.
Providing quality care is our first priority. We believe it is our responsibility to give patients the help and resources they need to restore and preserve their mental well being. We respect and safeguard the privacy, dignity and human rights of every person under our care.
Sharp HealthCare utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to psychiatric treatment. The attending psychiatrist directs and supervises a specific treatment plan that is individually developed for each patient and carried out by a professional team of registered nurses, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, psychiatric technicians, mental health counselors, activity therapists and dietitians. When possible, referring professionals are encouraged to maintain ties with their patients during inpatient treatment.
Family participation is a vital part of all our treatment programs. With the patient’s permission, we encourage family members to participate in the treatment process and, when appropriate, in family counseling. Also, we believe it is important for patients and their families to help develop a plan for continued care together. From the time of admission, our goal is to help the patient achieve successful integration back into the community.
