Atrium Health Behavioral Health Charlotte, a facility of Carolinas Medical Center, houses the only psychiatric emergency department in the region – and one of only a few in the country. Our nationally recognized virtual Behavioral Health platforms bring telepsychiatry into primary care and emergency department settings for improved patient care and outcomes. 



One in four Americans experiences a mental health issue. No one should be alone on the journey to recovery from a mental illness or substance use disorder. Atrium Health believes people seeking help for mental illness or substance use disorders should feel empowered and supported – not ashamed or embarrassed. There has never been a greater demand for access to behavioral health and substance abuse services.



With support from philanthropy, Atrium Health – which serves as the safety net provider for behavioral health services in the region – is addressing our community mental health and substance abuse needs. From funding behavioral health integration in primary care, to virtual care and peripartum depression programs, philanthropy continues to make a tremendous impact. 

As a not-for-profit healthcare provider, Atrium Health Behavioral Health relies on philanthropic support to sustain and enhance innovative programs and services for its adult and adolescent patients through the Carolinas Behavioral Health Advancement Fund, which is dedicated to the overall advancement of Behavioral Health across the Atrium Health enterprise. This fund supports ongoing facility improvements, new treatment advances, as well as educational and clinical research programs for Atrium Health Behavioral Health facilities. Whether you are a grateful patient, family member, or simply an advocate for access to behavioral health care, you can make a difference today!
