Why VINE?

For many adults, receiving consistent mental health care unfortunately can take a backseat to the multiple demands and responsibilities of work, family, and also school. As a result, problems that go unaddressed for too long can lead to symptoms whichbecome unmanageable and require hospitalization. One of the advantages of the Vine Unit is that treatment can be initiated and accelerated quickly. Rather than waiting for a follow-up appointment after an initial evaluation, patients can begin actively addressing problems in a sustained manner, learning with and from one another.
