Women's Health

Atlantic Behavioral Health at Overlook Medical Center recently achieved a designation held by only a small number of hospitals nationwide. The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification for Depression recognizes the exceptional resources we provide to patients struggling with mental illness in our community. Our program utilizes mindfulness, yoga, a patient-designed wellness recovery action plan and a behavior and symptom identification scale known as BASIS-24® to combat depression.
