In a Crisis

You can’t know when you’ll be overcome by depression, anxiety, overwhelming grief, or by family problems bigger than you can handle on your own. Even when we can see trouble looming on the horizon, no one ever thinks it’s really going to happen to them. And, even when problems do sweep us away, it’s hard to know when or how or where it’s okay to ask for help.

We offer a simple, one-step solution. Our Behavioral Medicine Center referral service can give you personal, one-on-one advice 24 hours a day about finding your most appropriate level of care or resource for mental health services. Call us. We’re here for you.

Geriatric Diagnostic Center

The “senior years” present unique challenges, especially for senior adults facing mental health challenges. Depression, anxiety, dementia and other mental health struggles complicate the “normal” health issues already associated with aging, both for us…and for our families.

St. Anthony’s Geriatric Diagnostic Center helps seniors live fuller lives with greater independence. At the St. Anthony South campus, we offer 24-hour inpatient care for a full range of mental health issues, as well as medical issues that may develop during a stay. We also offer partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient medication management.

Inpatient hospitalization programs offer comprehensive mental health diagnosis and treatment for senior adults. Using a multidisciplinary approach, symptoms of emotional, psychiatric, behavioral and stress related problems are treated to improve quality of live and relationships. Call (405) 713-5706 for pre-screening and to schedule an evaluation.
Outpatient Medication Clinic
This clinic provides patients with medication evaluations and follow-up visits conducted by a psychiatrist. Evaluations are provided for adults (age 17+) and senior adults. Psychiatrists are available for appointments Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm. Please call the office during normal business hours or between 9 to 11 am on Friday to schedule an appointment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 405-713-5790.

An alternative to – or a step down from – inpatient care, Stages offers a unique pairing of partial hospitalization with intensive outpatient treatment in a highly structured environment that includes individualized treatment planning, therapeutic milieu, individual and group therapy, enrichment activities, medication management, patient-specific consulting, and comprehensive discharge planning. Transportation provided within 20 miles of the hospital, and Stages is covered by Medicare. For more information, call 405-713-5706.

By combining specialized services with a multidisciplinary approach, we can accurately diagnose and treat not only your immediate problems, but even minimize the effects of chronic conditions.

The Treatable Signs of Aging
Seniors’ symptoms often indicate emotional, psychiatric, behavioral or stress-related issues, which may be medical, psychological, or a combination of both. Once considered “normal signs of aging,” many mental health challenges are actually symptoms of treatable conditions. With proper diagnosis and treatment, we can help seniors improve their quality of life and restore relationships with friends and loved ones.
