Welcome to WellStone Behavioral Health. Located in Huntsville, Alabama, our mission is to provide quality behavioral health services with a caring heart. We strive to be united in service to our community and to be a beacon of hope and recovery for those who trust us with their care. When 1 in every 5 people will experience a diagnosable behavioral health condition in a given year, it is critical that we have someone to turn to for support and guidance when needed.
Mental illness continues to rank second (behind only cardiovascular conditions) in burden of disease rankings and combined with substance abuse disorders is the leading cause of worker disability. In spite of the fact that research continues to demonstrate that the right treatment can be effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with these disorders, nearly two-thirds of all people with diagnosable mental health conditions do not seek treatment. The cost of care and the fragmentation of the service delivery system are significant barriers to people getting the help they need. Also, stigma still surrounds both mental illness and substance abuse disorders and prompts many people to hide their symptoms and avoid treatment.
We hope that the behavioral health information available here is useful in your recovery journey or in your efforts to provide support to someone you care about. We encourage you to visit www.bringchange2mind.org and to check out the links to other sites that share a similar mission.
