Treatment Settings

Mental health treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all. Where you seek help depends on your needs. Understanding your options can ease the process.

Professionals like psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and counselors provide mental health services. Psychiatrists prescribe medication, but not all take insurance.

  • Private Practice: Therapy sessions in offices or homes help you understand and manage your feelings and behaviors. Regular meetings are key.
  • Community or County Mental Health Centers: They offer care when private options aren’t available. Services include outpatient care, medication management, and more. Various professionals work here. Some clients use Social Security and Medicaid for funding.
  • Substance Abuse Treatment Centers: They treat mental health and substance use together. Detox facilities, residential programs, and outpatient services are common.
  • Teletherapy and Telepsychiatry: These virtual services are accessible and often covered by health plans. Research shows their effectiveness for many conditions. However, some prefer in-person care.

Be informed and consult your healthcare provider to choose the right mental health treatment.
