Mental Health Month

  • Symptoms of Mental Illness
  • Seeking Help for Mental Illness

Living a healthy and full life means not only focusing on your body’s physical needs, but on your mental and emotional needs as well. Behavioral health encompasses the way in which you handle stress and everyday deadlines and necessities, as well as your mood and your personal sense of fulfillment from life. Many Americans understand the risks and effects of conditions such as heart disease and diabetes on health and wellness, but aren’t as well-informed about the effects of mental illnesses and their treatment options. JFK Medical Center invites you to celebrate Mental Health Month during May. Our behavioral health services include a 31-bed inpatient unit, as well as an adult intensive outpatient program. We encourage you to visit our website or call (561) 548-4JFK (4535) for more information about behavioral health, emergency care and the other wellness services offered at our hospital and ER in Atlantis.
