Bipolar Disorder

Millions of Americans are affected by mental health conditions. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), about 43.8 million adults experience a mental illness in a given year. Some of the most prevalent mental health conditions include anxiety disorder, major depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

Additionally, about 10.2 million adults suffer from mental health conditions and addiction disorders. In 2010, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimated that 40% of adults with schizophrenia and 51% of individuals with severe bipolar disorder receive no treatment in one year.

Our goal at the American Telestroke & Neurology Psychiatric division is to expand psychiatric services and to improve psychiatric care. We treat adult patients for a wide range of mental illnesses and addiction disorders, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and more. Over the years, our psychiatric team has continued to grow, which has allowed for increased access to care.

Psychotherapy Services

These symptoms and struggles often have a significant impact on the patient’s ability to function as well as on their quality of life. We strive to provide patient-centered, strength-focused, and problem-solving approaches to help improve self-image, strengthen relationships, and promote a healthy lifestyle. Amaricantelestroke and Telepsychiatry offers comprehensive evaluations and treatment for patients with common mental health diagnoses, which include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and PTSD. Providers work collaboratively with patients as well as their support systems to create and implement a treatment plan that is tailored to the patient’s specific short and long-term goals.
