Ohio Hospital for Psychiatry is Here to Help.

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website and reaching out for help for yourself or a loved one. Our goal here is to provide you with knowledge about different disorders, treatment options available, and answer any questions you may have. At Ohio Hospital for Psychiatry, we know that seeking help can sometimes be harder than actually admitting there is an issue. That is why our staff is here to help every step of the way.

At OHP, we offer a number of different programs that allow us to meet patients where they are in their depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, or mental health illness. Our main focus is to provide guidance, structure, and compassion so that our patients can truly work on themselves and their recovery. Many patients who come to us when they’ve hit bottom are having thoughts of suicide or just can’t do it without help. And we are here to say, “We Can Help!”

Call one of our admissions counselors today for a free, confidential screening to see how Ohio Hospital for Psychiatry can help you regain a happy, healthy life.
