SUN Provides Evidence-Based Mental Health Services in Delaware
Our adult mental health programs use a wide variety of evidence-based treatments. From medications (if needed) to talk therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), our compassionate mental health professionals will work to find an approach that’s effective for you and your unique situation.
CBT can be a very effective tool in learning to cope with and overcome a mental health disorder. The goal of this treatment method is to help you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
At SUN Behavioral Delaware, we recognize that each person has their own experiences, and much like medications, what works for one person may not work best for another. We keep this in mind during the planning process for our treatment programs.
We offer immediate care for mental health and substance use disorders. We also provide ongoing therapy to help manage and cope with whatever troubles you may be facing.
An Understanding Care Provider with Compassionate Staff
As one of Delaware’s most comprehensive behavioral health organizations, SUN works to make life better and create positive outcomes for anyone dealing with mental health issues. Our psychiatrists and master’s level therapists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There is no single cure for the complex emotional issues at the heart of mental health disorders, but we’ll help uncover and resolve the often longstanding psychological issues that can affect mood, attitudes, and behaviors.
We’re also proud to practice trauma-informed care for those who may be struggling with traumatic experiences such as the loss of a loved one; physical, sexual, or psychological abuse; witnessing violence; a serious accident; a natural disaster; or war. We know that you are so much more than the things you’ve been through, and our trauma-informed care approach uses the principles of safety, empowerment, trustworthiness, collaboration, and choice.
The SUN team guides each patient through the process and provides the tools necessary for recovery. Patients are informed and empowered to be the experts in their own healing.

Is behavioral health the same as mental health?
These two aspects of health are intertwined and directly impact each other. While behavioral health refers to how behaviors impact a person’s well-being, mental health is primarily concerned with the person’s state of being.
Is there rehab for mental illness?
Yes. Like any other health condition, there are certain therapies and counseling methods that can be very successful in treating mental health disorders. Many of these therapies and methods are put together in structured programs, often called rehabilitation.
