Robert Young Center for Community Mental Health

UnityPoint Health - Robert Young Center (RYC) is an established and financially viable behavioral health care organization integrated within UnityPoint Health - Trinity as well as a Comprehensive Community Mental Health Center. This unique corporate model allows RYC to be at the national forefront of bi-directional integration of primary and behavioral healthcare services leading to better clinical outcomes at less expense for consumers. RYC offers 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 crisis intervention services for people experiencing psychiatric emergencies, who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or who simply need to talk to someone about the stresses affecting their lives. RYC also offers telehealth services to 17 sites, including 12 emergency departments in Iowa and Illinois, two school districts, and the Rock Island County Jail. In 2016, RYC was selected by the Eastern Iowa Mental Health/Disability Services Region to develop, implement and manage crisis behavioral health services for the 300,000 residents of Scott, Muscatine, Clinton, Jackson, and Cedar Counties in eastern Iowa. 

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.
