In 1969, Lakeside Behavioral Health System opened its doors with one mission in mind: to provide specialized behavioral health care and addiction treatment in a welcoming environment for people in search of healing. Our 37-acre campus, located on the outskirts of Memphis, Tennessee, features a state-of-the-science, 365-bed facility designed to make recovery an accessible, effective reality in the lives of our patients.
Our ultimate goal is your restored health. Within our system of care are professional, proven treatment programs that allow each person to grow and learn — through their own self-discovery and from those in similar situations. In every one of our programs, patients gain the education, skills training and symptom management tools to not just cope effectively with their illness but to live a happy, healthy, fulfilling life.
Every day, millions of people suffer from diagnosable mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, panic or trauma. Left untreated, these illnesses create a degree of incapacity that interferes with relationships, employment, education and everyday life. Fortunately, treatment is available. Lakeside has long been a leader in the field of behavioral health. Our programs allow each individual to gain the education and skills needed to manage their symptoms, problem solve, recognize life stressors and cope effectively with their illness.
When you or a loved one is struggling with mental illness or chemical dependency, the first step is to reach out for help. Whether you’re ready to make a change or don’t know where to start, we can help you or your loved one get back the life you want.
