Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. Without good mental health, our overall well-being is unsteady. Persistent feelings of sadness, a lack of concentration, worry, and restlessness, or reliance on substance use can make it harder for us to weather life’s storms.

If you’re experiencing symptoms, you’re not alone. According to the National Institute of Health, as many as 1 in 5 people may experience a mental illness in a given year. It is more common than we think. But, with advances in evidenced-based therapy and support, wellness and recovery can be a reality.

At Arden Shore, we know that making that first step to call for support can be a difficult one. But, we also know that when you take charge of your treatment—from your choice of where you go for service to your wellness goals—your results are better.

That’s why Arden Shore’s experienced, therapeutic professionals are dedicated to providing the person and family-centered care—offering you expert support and tools to empower you to reach your personal goals.

Arden Shore serves children, adolescents, adults, and families. Our services are offered in both English and Spanish.

Our Behavioral Health and Support Services are available by appointment Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, with limited weekend availability.

If you’re ready to learn more and take that first step towards wellness, please call us at (847) 623-1730.

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, call the Lake County Crisis Care Program at 847-377-8088, available 24/7, 911, or your local emergency room. Arden Shore does not operate a 24/7 crisis line or after hours service.
