Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital

Consider this a Warm Welcome to our Guests and Their Families!

Welcome to Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital!   We are a 116 bed inpatient facility located in Desoto Texas and we serve the surrounding communities of Southern Dallas County with a culture committed to compassion, dignity, and respect.  Our unique design allows for smaller units focused on specific treatment modalities which center around a charming courtyard.

What has been traditionally referred to as mental illness has a far greater reach into the lives of our families than was once believed.   You have my personal commitment as a clinician to continue to reduce stigma and bring to our community creative and integrated solutions.    This includes helping those facing the stress and anxiety of coping with depression and other brain disorders, trauma faced in childhood, and the changes we experience as our bodies and brains age. 

We have a great team.  Since one in five Americans is affected by a behavioral health diagnoses at one point in their lives, our team’s goal is to support you through these whether it be in our inpatient setting or through our growing outpatient programs.   As a family therapist I am focused on family involvement which helps support our patients and supports the healing process.    We encourage developing support systems!

Each life we touch matters.  We are here for you.  Please explore our site, keep up with our new programs and follow us on Linked In and Facebook to see the lovely smiles and commitment that radiates from our dedicated team.    We look forward to being a part of your journey into improved health and healing, and to increasing awareness about mind wellness. 

It is an honor and privilege to expand support and services to our region.
