Holly Casper
Program Director

Donalsonville Hospital Behavioral Health Unit offers individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere. The first things our professional team will do is a thorough evaluation to help determine what is causing a patient's distress and how we can best help. Our clinical team will check to see if there are any underlying medical or biochemical origins to these symptoms. The team will then work with the patient, their family and other healthcare professional to develop an appropriate course of treatment.

Treatment includes individual meetings with psychiatrists, group therapy, and educational programs.
