About Pittsburgh Mercy Behavioral Health
Nearly one in five adults in the United States lives with a mental health condition during a given year. That’s 46.6 million of our family members, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and us. 50% of Americans will experience a mental illness during their lifetimes. Additionally, one in 25 adults experiences a serious mental health condition that limits one or more life roles and activities, such as going to work or school. The good news is: you’re not alone. Have hope. Treatment is effective. Recovery is possible. We can help.

As the region’s only Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) and Integrated Care & Wellness Clinic (ICWC), we’re a leader in integrating physical and behavioral health care and in innovating services to support you in your journey to wellness. All our programs are person-centered and designed to deliver the right level of care at the right time. Each year, we help nearly 12,500 adults, children, adolescents, and seniors who have physical and behavioral health challenges.
