Coronavirus and Behavioral Health: As we navigate through coronavirus, it’s ok to feel stress and anxiety. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and think you may need help, call our 24/7 Behavioral Health Help Line at 704-444-2400, and speak to a licensed professional. 

Remember you’re not in this alone – together, we’ll move forward.

We offer inpatient behavioral health treatment in a dozen locations across Charlotte, Davidson, Concord and Kings Mountain, NC.

If you or a loved-one is having a crisis related to mental illness or substance use disorder (substance abuse), you may need to be admitted to a hospital for around-the-clock care.

This may include care for those having severe episodes related to:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Withdrawal from drug or alcohol addictions
  • Brain disorders such as schizophrenia

Referrals and Admission

Referrals may be made by self, family members, physicians, friends, employee assistance programs, employers, mental health professionals, managed care organizations, clergy, legal agencies and any other caring individuals or agencies.

Outpatient Care and Partial Hospitalization for Adults

Outpatient care is care that does not require an overnight stay in the hospital or clinic. At our outpatient locations throughout the Charlotte, NC region, we use treatment groups, health assessments and therapy to make sure you have the greatest opportunity to live a healthier, happier lifestyle.

This treatment may include care for those having episodes related to:

  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Thought disorders
  • Relationship problems

Our outpatient programs include:

  • Partial hospitalization
  • Individual, couples, family and group therapy to address coping skills, anger management, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) skills, grief and loss
  • Medication management
  • Forensic psychological evaluations
  • Maternal Wellness Program

Individual, couples, family and group therapy is available at Atrium Health Behavioral Health, a facility of Carolinas Medical Center, and in Concord at Atrium Health Cabarrus.


Maternal Wellness Program

Only half of women who suffer from postpartum depression (PPD) actually get help. Our Maternal Wellness Program gives PPD patients access to the care they need, in a timely manner, from experts with specialized training in prenatal (before birth) and perinatal (after birth) mood disorders and anxiety. We offer outpatient services, such as therapy and a weekly psychoeducational therapeutic group, as well as inpatient services for women in need of intense care for PPD.

The program is offered at Atrium Health Behavioral Health - Davidson

To be enrolled in our Maternal Wellness Program, call our clinic at 704-801-9200.

Partial Hospitalization for Adults

Partial hospitalization for behavioral health can be a "bridge" between inpatient and outpatient care. If you or a loved one needs care for mental illness or a substance use disorder (substance abuse) that may be more intensive than intermittent therapy but less intensive than the 24-hour care you would get staying in the hospital, partial hospitalization may be the right choice.

Partial hospitalization treatment is tailored to you or your loved one, and may include:

  • Personalized planning to achieve goals
  • Individual, couples, family and group therapy to address coping skills, anger management, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) skills, grief and loss
  • Psycho-educational classes
  • Behavior management
  • Medication management
  • Family education and support

Partial hospitalization for mental health issues is available at Atrium Health Behavioral Health, a facility of Carolinas Medical Center, and in Concord at Atrium Health Cabarrus.

  • Hours of Operation
    9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday

Behavioral Health Medication Management

Medications are often used in the treatment of behavioral health issues and mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders. Even though medications do not cure mental illness, they can improve symptoms and help promote recovery. When combined with other treatments such as psychotherapy or counseling, you can often find yourself living a happier, more balanced life.

Atrium Health offers outpatient medication clinics throughout the Charlotte, NC, region. Experienced medical professionals work with you or your loved ones to educate you on the proper use of your medicines.
