Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital

May marks Mental Health Awareness Month and Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital understand that now more than ever, mental health is the topic of many conversations throughout their community and the country. With the Stay-At-Home order still in place, many are finding themselves or loved ones facing feelings of anxiety, restlessness, or even depression. Many are even taking to social media platforms to express their frustrations and their concerns about the prolonged effects of isolation. Bakersfield Behavioral is dedicated to helping their community through these same social media platforms by offering various techniques to combat their heightened feelings during this time.

Bakersfield Behavioral will be dedicating a heightened presence on social media platforms as well as through drive-up give-a-ways in order to help those in need during the month of May.
