Behavioral Health Services are offered at the University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive and integrated health care approach to best serve our community’s behavioral healthcare needs.  We are committed to providing the highest quality of care through a full service continuum that includes inpatient and outpatient programs for adults.  With a focus on recovery, our patient centered treatment approach seeks to enrich individual lives and the communities we serve.

Outpatient Clinic

Outpatient Clinic services are provided at UM Harford Memorial Hospital. Services offered include medication evaluation and management by a psychiatric physician or psychiatric nurse practitioner as well as psychotherapy services with a licensed psychotherapist.

Emergency Room Evaluation

Our licensed and qualified behavioral health clinicians are available at both of our hospitals to evaluate and determine appropriate levels of care for patients presenting to the Emergency Department with psychiatric care needs.

Medical Consultations

Our licensed and qualified behavioral health clinicians are available at both of our hospitals to evaluate and determine appropriate levels of care for patients with psychiatric care needs that are in a medical care unit of the hospital.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The mental health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is provided at Harford Memorial Hospital and is a structured, group therapy program for adults who are experiencing significant mental health issues that interfere with social, occupational or interpersonal functioning.

Group therapy provides an opportunity to explore how you understand yourself and others. Participants actively participate in treatment outcomes and receive multidisciplinary and multimodal treatment from a highly qualified and licensed Behavioral Health team. 

How to Refer
Referrals can come from hospitals, community providers or the individual. To make a referral, please call 443-843-8800.

A comprehensive evaluation process will determine if you require this level of care.
 
Admission Process

Intensive Outpatient Programs have regulated admission criteria. We will evaluate if IOP is the best fit for you. An individual who meets admission criteria, is motivated to change, and can interact well in a group setting will benefit the most from IOP. If you do not meet admission criteria, our IOP staff will work to provide you with referrals/resources.

Acute Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient behavioral health treatment is provided at University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital for individuals 18 years of age or older who are in need of short term, acute psychiatric care. We provide a safe environment where patients receive a comprehensive evaluation and intensive, multidisciplinary treatment by caring, licensed professionals to facilitate their reentry into the community. 

Our facility accommodates medically compromised and physically disabled patients requiring inpatient behavioral health treatment. Treatment may include group and individual therapies, medication evaluation and monitoring, nursing services, occupational therapy, social work services, education, and support services. 

Acute Inpatient Treatment is accessed through emergency department evaluations.
