Behavioral Health Services

Feeling and being healthy involves more than physical health. Mental and emotional health are just as important. We are here for you – whether you have been here before or are new to MetroHealth.  Our behavioral health team offers evaluations and treatment in both inpatient and outpatient settings.   

Please Note: If you are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, call the Mobile Crisis Team at 216-623-6888 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately. 

New Patients

Is this your first time requesting services? If you have not seen a MetroHealth behavioral health provider in the past 3 years, we ask that you schedule an intake appointment. The purpose of this initial appointment is to determine what kind of care is needed. No counseling and/or medication is provided until your assessment is complete and you are connected with a psychiatrist or psychologist/licensed mental health counselor for care.

Services Offered

MetroHealth offers a wide array of behavioral health services, including medication management, counseling, and therapy and treatment for substance use disorders.

The MetroHealth Behavioral Health team can address a variety of behavioral health issues, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia

We offer care in two formats:

  • Inpatient program: designed for people with acute mental health disorders that require intense, around-the-clock care and supervision.
  • Outpatient program: designed for people who have mental health disorders but can continue to live at home while they access care.

The therapies we offer in these programs can vary depending on the mental health issue at hand, but programs might include medication, individual psychotherapy and group psychotherapy.

And they are tailored to your needs:

The MetroHealth Behavioral Health Difference

Behavioral health is integrated into all care throughout the MetroHealth System.  

This means your mental health is considered part of your comprehensive care whether you are seen at our main campus or one of our many locations across Northeast Ohio.

Our diverse group of specialists include:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Clinical Psychologists
  • Advanced Practice Nurses
  • Mental Health Counselors
  • Social Workers
  • Chemical Dependency Counselors
  • Medical residents and student interns from various disciplines 

Our attending physicians are all faculty at Case Western Reserve University. We have a robust teaching program that consistently brings new ideas and energy to our department, and our staff have experience in a wide range of treatment approaches.

Our behavioral health specialists offer services in the Emergency Department at MetroHealth Medical Center. We have a doctor available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you enter the hospital with a psychiatric emergency, or you need someone to talk to because of an illness or injury that sent you to the hospital, we can help. 

Behavioral health services are integrated into several of our primary care clinics and specialty care areas, including sleep, weight management and cancer care clinics. This allows patients to receive behavioral healthcare services in conjunction with their medical care.  

We also offer specialized behavioral health services outside our facilities:

  • On-site evaluations for kids in foster care 
  • Wellness Re-entry Assistance Program for people leaving the Cuyahoga County Jail who need access to primary care, mental health and substance use treatment 

Recovery Services for Substance Use Disorders 

When drugs or alcohol affect your life, MetroHealth can help. We offer Level-of-Care Assessments for substance use disorders. Then we work with patients and their families to map out personalized treatment plans. MetroHealth provides intensive and non-intensive outpatient group services, individual counseling and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).

The MetroHealth System and Recovery Resources have partnered to coordinate care for patients with behavioral health and addiction issues. The partnership expands services for the community, allowing current Recovery Resources’ clients and MetroHealth patients to receive coordinated care for mental illness, and substance use disorders.
