In brief: New Name for Care
Behavioral health facilities are centers, clinics, or hospitals that address and treat mental illness and/or substance abuse problems.
Most promote independent living in the community and aim to prevent unnecessary, restrictive institutional placements. The objective is to help these individuals to continue to be productive members of their communities.
