Consistent Care for Effective Behavior Management

Safe and respectful environments and consistent care are crucial to effective treatment of behavioral, emotional and mental health issues.

As a foundation for consistent care, LewisGale Regional Health System hospitals train staff members—from emergency department and security personnel to nursing supervisors, intensive care unit staff and mental health providers—in a nonviolent crisis intervention process from the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI), the program recognized nationally for delivering the best outcomes. Our team of CPI-trained professionals ensures that mental health patients who enter our care at any point benefit from a consistent approach to effective behavior management.

In addition, many of our team members hold the professional designation of Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse, as certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), part of the American Nurses Association and the world’s largest credentialing organization.

Integrated Care from a Team of Professionals

Our multidisciplinary approach gives patients access to a wide range of treatment and care provided by many healthcarel professionals. Because we integrate behavioral health throughout our hospitals, all current patients anywhere in our healthcare system can benefit from our mental health services. Consults, mental health assessments and screenings are available through our regional healthcare system.
