Behavioral Health

RHD’s history of innovative services began in the behavioral health field, establishing Lower Merion Counseling & Mobile Services in 1970 in response to a community need for outpatient services. Since then, RHD has expanded to meet a variety of needs, utilizing recovery principles in offering services that range from closely supervised housing and intensive inpatient therapy to outpatient counseling and art programs designed for healing through creativity.

Programs for both children and adults build life skills and self-confidence, removing as many barriers to independent living as possible. Residential programs such as RHD’s Enhanced Supportive Housing Program in North Carolina stress life skills education, so that adults with mental illnesses may live successfully within their communities.

RHD prides itself on creative approaches to complex challenges. All the programs listed below assist individuals with behavioral health issues. Please click on the links for more information.
