Help For A Teen Help For An Adult
Admission Form


Silver Hill began this blog to share our expertise and begin a dialogue with the public about mental illness. It is our hope that this will help to demystify and destigmatize a disease that has been shrouded in misperceptions, confusion and often incorrect information. We cover a range of topics, from suicide to addiction to gardening, and the importance of nutrition in caring for the brain. 


We hope you will submit questions and comments so we can further explain an illness that affects one in four Americans. If there are any other topics you would like covered, please send them along too.


We hope you will find this helpful, and look forward to hearing from you.


Art Therapy: What is it and how does it help our patients?
Art therapy has been around since the 1940s, but many people don’t understand what it entails or what the benefits are. Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that encourages people to explore feelings, perceptions and imagination through visual art.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that affects 7.7 million American adults. The disorder usually develops after being exposed to a terrifying event that had the potential for or actually caused harm to an individual, but it can also be triggered by the sudden death of a loved one or a traumatic event experienced by a friend or family member.
