At Harrison Healthcare, we fully recognize that mental health issues are having an ever-increasing impact on our physical health, longevity, vitality and our overall feeling of well-being.
This is particularly troubling for children, teens and young adults when early emotional, cognitive and behavioral patterns can have a negative long-term effect on overall health. Mental health issues are the largest obstacle to effective therapeutic lifestyle change and physical disease prevention.
There is no scientific doubt about the mind-body connection and how our complex body systems interact with each other. That is why Harrison is focused on treating the whole person – body, mind and brain. Fortunately, many mental health issues can also be prevented, particularly when they are discovered early when treatment is most effective.
Each Centre is staffed with highly trained psychologists and other mental health professionals that serve to assess each client’s state of mental health, discover early indicators of problems and recommend specific interventions.
Approach to mental healthcare
Since many of the very best mental health professionals have established practices in the community, Harrison adopts a “best of breed” approach to mental healthcare. Our own staff specialize in assessment and navigation to the most respected professionals for the recommended care. And they provide a valuable link to your Harrison physician to ensure your overall “whole person” care is optimized and coordinated with your personal health plan.
Mental health assessment, development of a treatment plan, and coordination is included in Harrison’s Premier programs. Costs for individual therapies are provided on a fee-for-service basis by the professionals in our mental care network.
