Behavioral Health

Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS) has a longstanding history of providing behavioral health services to the people of Maricopa County – a service area that has been undergoing significant growth in recent years.

MIHS is one of the largest providers of inpatient behavioral health services in Arizona, serving both adults and adolescents. In addition to our inpatient programs, MIHS operates several outpatient behavioral health programs for both adults and adolescents with plans for future expansion underway.

As part of the MIHS teaching mission, we offer Graduate Medical Education programs in both General Psychiatry and Child Psychiatry. Our psychiatrists in training provide services in both our inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs.

Please navigate through the Inpatient and Outpatient services for details and contact information for the different programs.



Approximately one in five adults experience a mental health condition every year, and one in 17 live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Currently only about half of children and less than half of adults with diagnosable mental disorders get the treatment they need.

Similar to other medical illnesses, mental health conditions may be caused by a reaction to environmental stressors, genetic factors, biochemical imbalances, or a combination of these. They are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing.

When a loved one or friend is diagnosed with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or another medical illness, we want them to get the appropriate treatment right away, when they first show warning signs of an illness. Unfortunately, the early symptoms of a mental health disorder (e.g. sudden changes in thoughts and behaviors, inability to sleep or being tired for no reason, feeling anxious or hearing voices) are often not recognized and it typically takes ten years for someone to get a correct diagnosis and proper treatment.

Recovery is possible for individuals and their families, and intervening early before a crisis arises is critical. Mental illness and substance use disorders are treatable and most people do get better when they are provided access to timely and appropriate treatment. Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. At MIHS we are committed to providing appropriate screenings, diagnosis, and treatment to support an individual’s recovery and educate and support their family and loved ones.

If you or someone you know is in a behavioral health crisis now, seek help immediately. Call 602-222-9444 or 1-800-631-1314 to reach a 24-hour crisis center.
