Understanding Mental Illness and Levels of Psychiatric Care

There's no doubt about it; mental illness is complex. Fortunately, Menninger psychiatrist Carlin Barnes, MD, and a former colleague have written Understanding Mental Illness: A Comprehensive Guide to Mental Health Disorders for Family and Friends to help the consumer expand their knowledge of mental illness.


We also recommend our guide to the different levels of psychiatric care that are available because what level of care a loved one needs today may be very different from one that might be needed next year.


If you have questions about these levels of care, talk to a Care Coordinator at 713-275-5400.
