RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

NAMI again gives the nation a D

The National Alliance on Metal Illness (NAMI) began a scoring system in 2006 to judge each state’s commitment to and support systems for ensuring mental health. NAMI’s 2009 report has brought out some disappointing numbers, with the United States as a whole being ranked as a D in provisions for mental health. According to NAMI, states that have worked the hardest to improve their mental health care provisions may have their gains wiped out by the country’s poor economic health and fading resources. NAMI declared Oklahoma to be the state that had made the most improvement with its grade raised from a D in 2006 to a B this year. South Carolina, unfortunately, dropped from a B in 2006 to a D this year. The following is an excerpt of an article from BehavioralHealthcare.com that discusses NAMI’s report more:

The nation’s progress toward reforming public mental healthcare systems again has been given a “D” grade by the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI first issued the Grading the States report in 2006 and released the 2009 update today, and it says those states that have worked the hardest to transform their systems could have gains wiped out as state governments face dwindling resources in the economic downturn.

NAMI says Oklahoma improved the most, with its grade rising from a D in 2006 to a B this year, and 13 other states also improved their scores. South Carolina had the greatest decline, falling from a B to a D, and 11 other states also slipped in NAMI’s rankings. Twenty-three had no change from 2006 to 2009. NAMI determines the grades based on 65 criteria. To see how your state scored, click here.

Among some of the findings in the latest report:

* SAMHSA has failed to promote uniform standards for collecting data at the state, county, and local levels;

* states are not focusing on wellness services for people with serious mental illnesses (SMI);

* states lack plans for developing and maintaining their mental healthcare workforces;

* consumers and families do not have adequate input in monitoring mental healthcare systems’ performance; and

* states are not considering the long-term housing needs of people with SMI.
