Mental Illnesses Treated

Life often presents us with unexpected challenges, and when mental health struggles arise, it can be difficult to reach out for help. Please know that you are not alone on this path.

Glen Oaks Hospital serves as a guiding light in the darkness, offering a safe haven where healing takes root, and hope is rekindled. We recognize that seeking assistance is a courageous step, whether you’re battling depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, psychosis, or even grappling with suicidal ideation. Our devoted team of mental health professionals is committed to supporting you at every step of your journey.

We provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs that address a wide range of mental health challenges, including mood disorders and suicidal ideation. We treat a range of mental health issues, including:



  • Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Fatigue and decreased energy
  • Changes in appetite and sleep patterns
  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • If you’re experiencing persistent low mood and loss of interest in daily activities.
  • If your symptoms interfere with your daily life, work, or relationships.



  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Restlessness or feeling on edge
  • Muscle tension
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating and trembling
  • Panic attacks

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • When anxiety becomes overwhelming and interferes with your daily functioning.
  • If anxiety symptoms persist and cause distress.

Anxiety disorders encompass a range of conditions characterized by excessive worry, fear and sometimes physical symptoms such as panic attacks. Inpatient treatment provides a safe space for individuals to learn effective coping mechanisms to manage anxiety.

Through psychoeducation, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and relaxation techniques, patients can gain tools to navigate their anxious thoughts and sensations. The structured nature of inpatient care helps individuals confront their fears and challenges under professional guidance, facilitating lasting change and a return to a more manageable level of anxiety.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


  • Intrusive memories or flashbacks of a traumatic event
  • Avoidance of triggers or reminders
  • Negative changes in mood and thoughts
  • Heightened arousal, including irritability, anger, and difficulty sleeping

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • If you have experienced a traumatic event and have symptoms that persist for more than a month.
  • When trauma-related symptoms impact your daily life and well-being.

PTSD develops after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. It can lead to intrusive memories, nightmares and emotional numbing. Inpatient treatment for PTSD offers a supportive environment for individuals to process traumatic experiences under the guidance of trauma-informed therapists.

Through evidence-based therapies, patients can work through the trauma’s emotional impact. Inpatient care allows for intensive focus on healing and breaking the cycle of distressing symptoms.

Bipolar Disorder


  • Periods of mania (elevated mood, increased energy) and depression
  • Impulsivity
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Grandiosity or inflated self-esteem
  • Irritability

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • When mood swings significantly affect your daily life and relationships.
  • If you experience extreme emotional highs and lows.

Bipolar disorder involves extreme mood swings, from manic episodes of heightened energy and impulsivity to depressive episodes of low energy and motivation. Inpatient treatment helps stabilize individuals during acute episodes, offering medication management, psychoeducation and therapy to manage mood fluctuations.

The structured routine of inpatient care provides stability, and psychiatric professionals monitor medication responses closely. Patients gain insight into their triggers, learn mood regulation strategies and develop relapse prevention plans to maintain stability upon discharge.

Borderline Personality Disorder


  • Unstable relationships
  • Intense fear of abandonment
  • Identity disturbance
  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Self-harming or suicidal behavior
  • Rapid mood swings

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • When interpersonal relationships are consistently strained due to impulsive behaviors.
  • If you struggle with emotional instability and self-harm tendencies.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is characterized by unstable emotions, relationships and self-image. Inpatient treatment for BPD offers dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which focuses on emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and mindfulness.

The controlled environment of inpatient care aids individuals in practicing these skills in real-time situations and addressing impulsive behaviors. The therapeutic support helps patients develop healthier coping mechanisms and a more stable sense of self.



  • Hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that aren’t there)
  • Delusions (false beliefs)
  • Disorganized thinking
  • Impaired insight and judgment

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • When you experience hallucinations, delusions, or severe disorganization in thought and behavior.
  • If your ability to distinguish reality from delusions is compromised.

Psychosis involves a disconnection from reality, often leading to hallucinations and delusions. Inpatient mental health treatment provides a safe environment for individuals experiencing psychosis to stabilize and receive necessary medication adjustments.

Psychiatric professionals closely monitor symptoms and tailor treatment plans. Through group therapy, patients learn to manage distress related to their experiences, gain insight into their condition and acquire skills for daily functioning.

Suicidal Ideation


  • Persistent thoughts of suicide or self-harm
  • Planning or attempting suicide

Recognizing the Need for Help:

  • If you have thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
  • When these thoughts become a persistent and distressing part of your daily life.

Suicidal thoughts can be frightening and isolating. Inpatient mental health treatment offers a secure environment where individuals with suicidal ideation receive immediate attention and safety measures.

Therapists work intensively to address underlying factors contributing to these thoughts. Patients participate in individual and group therapy sessions to explore coping strategies, build resilience and establish a support network. Inpatient care ensures a heightened level of monitoring and protection during a critical period, with the goal of stabilizing emotions and fostering hope for the future.
