What We Treat

At Lindner Center of HOPE we treat a wide range of mental illnesses. This list represents the most common.

The treatment team at Lindner Center of HOPE is adept at identifying underlying causes of addictions and designing a plan to address both the mental illness and the addiction.

Anxiety disorders can strike anyone and the accompanying distresses they create can inflict a staggering toll on individuals and family members. Through inpatient, outpatient and residential treatment programs, teaching effective coping solutions helps patients overcome anxiety.

Co-occurring conditions, also known as dual diagnosis, are common yet complex. Research has shown that when patients are struggling with an addictive disorder along with a mental disorder, or two or more mental disorders, treating them at the same time by a multidisciplinary team is the most effective approach.

About one in 10 Americans suffer from a mood disorder. Lindner Center of HOPE offers a landmark program steeped in compelling research for the successful treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, and other mood disorders.

Lindner Center of HOPE board certified clinicians offer the wisdom, compassion and proven treatment modalities to successfully treat complex illnesses such as eating disorders, returning patients to more fulfilling lives.

OCD can lead to depression, unemployment, and even physical problems caused by compulsive behaviors. Fortunately, effective treatment can alleviate symptoms and bring healing to patients.

Some mental health concerns are unique to women, such as post-partum depression and other mental illnesses linked to physical changes, hormonal fluctuations, life-altering events. The Women’s Mental Health Program at Lindner Center of HOPE strives to promote and enhance women’s mental health and well-being across the reproductive lifecycle.

Adolescence and early adulthood are critical times for physical, cognitive, and social changes. Research has indicated that psychiatric illnesses frequently present during the adolescent years, thereby making early diagnosis and effective treatment even more crucial.

Untreated mental illness among physicians can pose risks to the quality and safety of patient care, prescribing habits, test ordering, and more. In association with partner healthcare organizations, Lindner Center of HOPE provides a private, rapid access service for physicians in need of psychiatric evaluation.

2.5x more

Americans suffer from mental illness than cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined.

The statistics are nothing short of staggering. One in four Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder, making mental illness the #1 health problem facing our nation. Magnifying the problem, mental illness remains shrouded in stigma, spoken of only in hushed tones in our society, causing many to avoid seeking treatment.

You are not alone. There is no need to suffer in silence.


Lindner Center of HOPE is a leader in diagnosing and treating mental illness.

Our goal has always been to set a new standard of mental health treatment and research, with the goal of becoming universally recognized as the top mental health care delivery system in the nation with outcomes that prove it. The Center continues to take steps to offer the best programs and services.

Working in affiliation with the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine, clinicians at the Center’s Research Institute actively pioneer new methods to better prevent, diagnose and treat mental illnesses. This is significant since it can typically take up to 17 years before research findings become fully integrated into routine diagnostics and treatment. However, at Lindner Center of HOPE, research informs patient care each and every day.

We provide a continuum of care for the full spectrum of a mental disorder. Highly credentialed, specialized teams at Lindner Center of HOPE address all aspects of mental illnesses. For example, services for eating disorders extend beyond anorexia, bulimia and binge eating to include overeating and obesity. Patients benefit from in-depth treatment for their specific diagnosis and unique needs.

The dedicated staff at Lindner Center of HOPE is uniquely skilled at diagnosing, treating and researching mental illnesses. They share a commitment to improving mental wellness and the effectiveness of today’s comprehensive care.

We continue to improve care through network affiliations and information sharing. The Center is recognized as one of only 22 members of the National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC), which includes Harvard, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Columbia University, and Duke University among others. Networks like these help the Centers collaborate on and learn about new and emerging treatment protocols.
