Mental Health Services
UnityPoint Health – Meriter is committed to the overall well-being of our patients including the psychiatric care of adults who struggle with mental health challenges.
Meriter's Adult Psychiatry program exists to help people when they are at their most vulnerable and unable to safely care for themselves. The road to mental health wellness can be long; however, many people have a renewed sense of self worth and willingness to overcome their challenges once they receive care.
Gifts to the Adult Psychiatry program offer hope to hundreds of individuals and families, each year. Presently, the acute unit is too small and requires modifications to improve the space and provide more room for patients to receive care. Another addition, a calming room, would offer patients exhibiting escalating behaviors an alternative opportunity to quietly reflect and develop self-awareness skills.
