With locations throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region, Mercy Behavioral Health has the necessary locations to provide the best possible treatment to people with a variety of needs.
Open 24/7, The Mercy Behavioral Health Crisis Center provides a safe, confidential environment to help you during your crisis. Crisis intervention and stabilization services include: walk-in assessment, on-site screening, triage, and referral. The Crisis Center also has diversion beds for those over age eight with a goal of stabilizing the individuals to avoid hospital stays, where possible.
We offer a variety of residential living arrangements from highly structured programs with psychiatrists, physicians, nurses and counselors available on site, to apartments for individuals who require little supervision. Whether you’re looking for a group home environment to recover from substance abuse or brief respite care to stabilize treatment, we offer plenty of options. A residential liaison will explain what choices are available to you.
We offer day programs for adults with intellectual disabilities as well as individuals living with mental illness. We have four adult training facilities for intellectually disabled adults where vocational, functional and socialization training is provided. Our outpatient facilities for those living with mental illness offer assessment/evaluation, therapy counseling, Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET), community employment services, and psychiatric rehabilitation.
Specific programs exist at our outpatient facilities to help individuals with intellectual disabilities and those living with a mental illness develop the job readiness skills for vocational placement.
