Behavioral Health at Pender Community Hospital 

In life, there’s ups and downs. Sometimes, everything is going great and we don’t have a care in the world. While other times, things get tough, leaving us feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or unable to control our emotions. If this happens to describe you— or someone close to you— it’s okay, because the behavioral health team at Pender Community Hospital is here to help. Just like with your physical health, it’s also very important to take care of your emotional well-being. Why? Because your mind and body—together—directly influence your quality of life. So, taking care of each can really be beneficial, helping you to lead a healthy, happy life.
