Mental illness is something that’s widely prevalent throughout our country. And, sadly, many people who are living with these conditions will never get the help they need to live out lives of mental health wellbeing. It was estimated by the National Institutes of Mental Health that in the year 2019, over 50 million US adults were impacted by mental illness. Here at Yellowbrick, we commit ourselves to provide helpful and successful evidence-based treatment to individuals needing help with mental illness. And, over the years, our commitment to this goal has made us a leader in the mental health treatment realm, specifically in the Chicago area. Find out how we have become a leader in mental health treatment and what makes our facility so special.
At Yellowbrick, we believe that the most successful methods of help for people living with mental health issues are those that are proven to be effective. This is why we provide tools that are evidence-based for people in our care. Some of these effective treatments include neuroscience technology, psychiatric medication, family treatment models, recognition, group and behavioral therapies, neurofeedback, and deep TMS.
Not every person deals with a mental illness the same as the next person might. This means that treatment should be different for every person. The way to approach the different dynamics of mental health issues is to provide multidisciplinary treatment. This means allowing for a number of different treatment methods in order to determine which may work best for individual needs. At Yellow Brick, we understand that what may work for one person may not work for the next. So, we offer a variety of treatment services in order to best address individual issues and work toward better overall mental health wellbeing for each person in our care.
People that are dealing with mental health issues are actually more likely to have other, concurring mental health issues, known as dual diagnosis. For these individuals, it’s vital to address all of the mental health issues that are present to receive accurate and successful care. At Yellowbrick, we strive to understand the issues that each individual in our care faces so they can receive the best possible care. And, learn how to manage all the symptoms that are brought about by each of the mental health issues they face. During our comprehensive assessments, we work to identify all of the physical, emotional, and mental health issues that each person in our care is facing to develop dual diagnosis treatment that’s effective in addressing every mental health symptom individuals live with in order to provide them with the tools and support necessary to develop true and lasting recovery.
Without compassionate care, individuals living with mental health issues may not feel they have the encouragement and support needed to strive for mental health success. So, we make it a goal to consistently provide compassionate care for each individual who walks through our doors. By providing this loving and trusting environment, individuals can feel safe enough to discover the tools and resources they need to identify a path to mental health recovery and a life of success outside our facility.
We know that recovery doesn’t end when treatment does. That’s why, here at Yellowbrick, we provide a number of outside resources that individuals can utilize after they’ve completed their initial treatment plan. These resources include our residential living facility and family assistance. By providing these additional resources, individuals developing a life outside of treatment can gradually instill what they’ve learned into their daily lives, giving them a better chance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and mental health wellbeing.
