Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pasacreta "Dr. Pasacreta believes that there must be a national shift away from the delivery of crisis oriented mental health services modeled after law enforcement practices to compassionate, preventive, routine services that begin in childhood and normalize rather than stigmatize psychiatric problems. Americans are overwhelmed by daily stress, crises & maladaptive behaviors that are typically misunderstood and mismanaged. Increased longevity, mounting modern day stressors, 24/7 news access, economic instability, dissolution of extended families,etc, are just a sampling of factors that have raised American stress levels to unprecedented levels yet we understand little about  the long term effects of these phenomena which prevents action. Although the prevalence of major mental illness is not increasing, individualsn need more help than than ever before with serious mental health problems that are poorly understood and mismanaged by an outdated and fragmented system.  "
