Over 30,000 adults and 9,000 adolescents are currently struggling with their mental health in Delaware. Only 47% of those people will receive treatment this year. At SUN Behavioral Health Delaware, we believe that your mental health is just as important as your physical health. That’s why our team of qualified clinicians is dedicated to treating mental health with quality care and evidence-based practices.

Our team works together to ensure that you feel heard and taken care of. Our goal is to create a treatment plan that fits your unique needs and gets you on the road to wellness. Joy is possible, and we’re here to help you find it.
There is no set “cause” of mental health issues. There are, however, risk factors. If someone has been diagnosed with a mood disorder, chances are, they’ve been prone to one for a while.
Some common risk factors for mental health issues include:
All facilities differ slightly in the treatments they offer. At SUN Behavioral Health Delaware, we know that each person comes with their own unique story, which is why we have such a diverse offering of treatments.
Some of the most common forms of mental health treatment include:
This is also called talk therapy, and it can be incredibly effective. One of the largest barriers to wellness when living with a mental illness is the inability to identify and manage your triggers. Psychotherapy teaches this, along with how to practice self-compassion, set realistic goals, and reframe negative thoughts.
In extreme cases, close monitoring might be needed. This is where hospitalization can come in handy. This type of treatment can be useful to ensure that the patient’s mental illness doesn’t get worse. Clinicians will also make sure the patient has an accurate diagnosis and is taking medications that work for them.
This type of therapy can bring relief to those who feel they’re alone in their feelings or struggles. Group therapy is a chance to heal in a safe, caring environment filled with people who share the same goals. In this type of therapy, patients will receive valuable insight and learn to lean on others.
This type of therapy is used frequently for PTSD or trauma-related disorders. It involves focusing on trauma for short periods of time while retraining the brain to become desensitized to it.
Alternative medicine and holistic therapies can include meditation, yoga, equine therapy, ear seeding, acupuncture, and more. If patients are hesitant to take western medicine or participate in traditional therapy, this can be an effective healing option.
Medications can help to balance brain chemistry. Popular medications for mood disorders like anxiety or depression are typically selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Medication for mood disorders can be prescribed through a primary care physician, a treatment provider, or a psychiatrist.
At SUN, our interest lies in providing treatment for anyone who needs it. That’s why we have both adolescent and adult mental health services. For both age groups, we offer inpatient and outpatient treatment, group therapy, individual therapy, depression screening tools, and trauma counseling.
If you’re living with co-occurring disorders, we can help with that, too. We have treatment programs that can help you address any substance use in your life along with any mental health struggles.
Part of our mission is to help you find the right mental health treatment plan. You’re unique, and your response to treatment will be unique. The reason we offer such a wide variety of treatments and services is because we know what helps one person might not help another. When you find the right treatment, your life can change.
