Saint Luke’s North Hospital’s Behavioral Health Program is designed to meet the physical and behavioral health needs of patients facing life-disrupting emotions or mental illness.
Our team of licensed and trained specialists in psychiatry and behavioral health has one goal: to help patients get better.
Advancements in behavioral health and medications mean we can successfully treat most psychiatric illnesses.

- Psychiatric nurses and nurse practitioners
- Master’s-level licensed social workers (LCSW/LMSW)
- Master’s-level licensed professional counselors (LPC)
- Expressive therapists (music, art, recreation)
- Board-certified psychiatric pharmacist (RPh, BCPP)
