Senior Mental Health

Enjoy your golden years.

Not a Normal Part of Aging

Every day of life should be lived fully. But the changes that come with aging can be challenging, making it difficult to enjoy life – not only for those who are growing older, but also for their family members. Memory loss, depression, anxiety, acute psychosis, substance abuse. A wide range of psychological, behavioral and emotional conditions, and confusion about where to turn for help, can be especially frightening when they affect seniors. It's not part of the normal aging process to experience these conditions. But the mental health experts at INTEGRIS Health can help. Whether you need inpatient treatment for severe memory loss or dementia, or outpatient services such as therapy or medication evaluation and monitoring, you can trust that you’ll receive the best care available from our board-certified psychiatrists and therapists who specialize in geriatric mental health.
