You are not alone.
If you or someone you love is struggling with mental illness, we want you to know that we are here to help. Whether it’s depression brought on by life circumstances or a more involved diagnosis, you don’t have to go through it alone.
Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) was founded in 1911 by a group of deacons of the Reformed tradition who sought to address a topic that was rarely spoken of at that time: mental illness. Having seen the thoughtless and sometimes inhumane ways in which mentally ill people were treated, this group of visionaries vowed to create a place where they would be cared for with love and compassion based on Christian principles.
Through the years, CHCC has maintained and expanded that original vision as we have created specialized programs to care for people of any age, with a wide range of diagnoses. However, while our campus has changed, our commitment has remained the same. We believe in the value and dignity of all people and seek to meet them where they are, with a team of highly trained, dedicated professionals who provide loving, compassionate treatment and care.
We offer mental-health services through three programs:
Christian Health Care Counseling Center provides individual, family, and group counseling for children to seniors in a supportive environment.
Ramapo Ridge Partial-hospitalization Program is a voluntary program that provides short-term, outpatient treatment to adults experiencing severe symptoms.
Ramapo Ridge Psychiatric Hospital is a fully accredited inpatient psychiatric hospital for adult and geriatric patients.
