At Creekside Behavioral Health, we know how vital family support can be and the important role it can play in getting treatment for a loved one.
Seeing a family member or loved one in need or struggling with a mental health condition can be a frightening and heartbreaking experience. We want to be a resource for those located throughout Kingsport and the surrounding regions.
How You Can Help
If you are a family member or friend of someone in need of help, consider the following approaches:
Explain to the person your reason for concern in a caring manner while staying calm.
Offer options. If the person does not want help today, ask if they would consider getting help in the near future.
Offer them support by volunteering to take them for an assessment or ask if they would like you to be present during the assessment.
Offer alternatives to our services. If the person is not interested in our services, maybe there is another environment where they would feel more comfortable initially.
At Creekside, we strive to provide an open, friendly, and helpful atmosphere for our patients. Our goal is to treat each patient according to his or her specific needs, and tailor a plan to help them achieve success for their mental or behavioral health challenges. And we want to support families as they deal with the challenges facing them.
