Behavioral Health Services

Bristol Hospital's Behavioral Health Services provides a comprehensive range of programs designed to meet the emotional and psychiatric needs of the community. We believe that individuals and families in crisis, with mental health or substance abuse problems, can best be served in their own community, remaining close to family and other support systems.
We recognize that each person is unique; therefore, we individualize treatment plans according to needs. Services are provided by a skilled team of professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, counselors, social workers, nurses and occupational therapists. We are prepared to avert or treat a crisis through the 24-hour crisis intervention service, treat those in need of inpatient hospital acute care, provide comprehensive outpatient services through Bristol Hospital's Counseling Center or offer community educational seminars. We envision ourselves as part of the greater Bristol community and believe that working in conjunction with other community agencies on behalf of our clients is essential.
