You can experience mental health issues at any age or stage. That’s why we have experts who specialize in adolescent, adult and geriatric care.

A few reasons you may benefit from Ochsner’s psychiatry and behavioral health services include the following:

  • Acute (sudden) or chronic (ongoing) medical illness
  • Addictive disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic psychiatric illness
  • Depression
  • Emotional effects of a medical illness or life change
  • Failing relationships
  • Habit disorders
  • Learning disorders
  • Medication-induced emotional disorders
  • Organ transplantation

Managing your mental health requires an approach as unique as you. Through our comprehensive psychiatry and behavioral health services, your team develops a treatment plan custom-made for you.

Depending on your age, diagnosis and severity of symptoms, you may benefit from one or more of the following:

  • Acute psychiatry services (inpatient hospitalization)
  • Adult behavioral health services
  • Brief evidence-based psychotherapy
  • Child and adolescent behavioral health services
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Electroconvulsive therapy
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
  • Geriatric psychiatry services
  • Individual, group or family therapy
  • Medical psychiatry
  • Medication management
  • Perinatal and postpartum behavioral health care
  • Presurgical testing
  • Psychiatric assessment and evaluation
  • Psychological testing
  • Psychotherapy

Licensed clinical psychologists, board-certified psychiatrists and others staff the psychiatry and behavioral health program at Ochsner. Each is an expert in meeting your mental health needs.

Your care team may include one or more of the following:

  • Adult psychiatrists
  • Clinical psychologists
  • Geriatric psychiatrists
  • Licensed clinical social workers
  • Medical psychologists
  • Physician associates
  • Psychiatric nurse practitioners

Additionally, as part of Ochsner, our experts partner with other specialists who care for your overall well-being. From neurologists to cardiologists to primary care doctors, we ensure a smooth continuum of care.

Psychologists specialize in talk therapy. Psychiatrists, on the other hand, utilize medication and other treatment modalities to care for mental health issues.

As a full-service psychiatry and behavioral health program, Ochsner offers both. We also provide some hard-to-find services. Advanced care options we can provide include:

  • Electroconvulsive therapy. Bipolar disorder and severe depression don’t always respond to traditional treatments. That’s when electroconvulsive therapy can help. For this therapy, you are given medicine to prevent you from feeling pain before brief electrical impulses stimulate your brain. This stimulation can reverse symptoms of your mental health condition. Treatment lasts five or 10 minutes.
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). When depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) does not improve with other treatments, TMS may help. During a therapy session, a specialized device creates brief electromagnetic pulses. These stimulate nerve cells in the brain that are the root of depression or OCD. The whole process is painless and conducted in the outpatient clinic setting with no anesthesia.
