Mental Health Advocacy UnityPoint Health Trinity

Mental Health & Substance Abuse

No health care system is complete without a behavioral health division. The recent advances in behavioral health have given way to richer, deeper, treatment programs that put the patient at the center of each care plan. Since our founding, the Robert Young Center has championed mental health care advocacy, offering services under UnityPoint Health - Trinity.

Robert Young Center for Mental Health and Substance Abuse

Robert Young Center for Community Mental Health

We are proud to be one of the most experienced mental health care providers, with a long tradition of caring for our community. While being a leader in compassionate care is important, we believe it's equally important to be a leader in the behavioral health industry.

The Robert Young Center (RYC) is an established and financially viable behavioral health care organization that is integrated within UnityPoint Health - Trinity as well as a Comprehensive Community Mental Health Center. This unique corporate model allows us to be at the national forefront of bi-directional integration of primary and behavioral healthcare services which leads to better clinical outcomes at less expense for the patient.  We offer a full continuum of behavioral health services including outpatient therapies, inpatient psychiatric services, partial hospitalization, continuing care, and chemical dependency treatment services.

Additionally, RYC offers 24 hours a day, seven days a week crisis intervention services for those people experiencing psychiatric emergencies, those under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or those who simply need to talk to someone about the stresses affecting their lives.

For those individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses (such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc.), RYC offers an alternative to hospitalization and hope for recovery through the Community Support Program (CSP). CSP also offers District 22, which serves as a gathering point for these individuals to learn life skills and prevocational training while offering the opportunity for socialization.
