Behavioral Health

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and at Northern Nevada Health System, we understand that.

We offer a residential behavioral health treatment program called Senior Bridges where adults age 50 and older can get the dedicated care they need.

Inpatient Behavioral Health

Inpatient behavioral health services or residential mental health care is a long-term stay at a residential mental health facility that allows for the maximum structure and treatment for mental health disorders.

From support systems, education and medication management to family, individual and group therapies, patients live at the residential facility while attending treatment. Whether acute care for mental health issues or treatment for substance use disorders, Northern Nevada Health System wants to help you get better.
