Behavioral and Mental Health
You don’t have to handle life on your own. Difficult life experiences, trauma, grief and loss, accidents, abuse, chemical imbalances, or harmful environments can create mental conditions that left unaddressed create larger issues. There’s no shame and seeking help does not mean you are not “strong enough,” and it can be dangerous to “power through” and not treat mental health risks. Avera is here to support your mental health.
If you or a loved one feel overwhelmed or concerned about personal well-being or safety, rely on the behavioral and mental health specialists at Avera. The Upper Midwest’s leader for confidential, personalized, family-centered care, Avera treats you as a whole person. You’ll receive attention for all aspects of your health —mental, emotional, spiritual, physical — and it’s tailored to your specific situation.

Multiple Care Environments
Two powerful elements of the healing process – art therapy and family involvement – form the cornerstone of your experience. At each Avera behavioral health clinic or site, you’ll find appealing room décor and artwork that supports a positive therapeutic atmosphere. You also benefit from referral to the most appropriate care – found at over 10 locations throughout our extensive multi-state network.
As much as possible, your family and friends will be invited into the healing process. That’s because evidence-based research shows that recovery in our programs happens more quickly when loved ones are involved in care.
