You need to realize that the world is better because you’re in it.

  If your interactions at home, school, or on social media don’t support that fact, something needs to change. Anxiety, depression, hopelessness, fear, trauma, and stress can affect the lives of people of all ages. If you feel that you or your child is suffering from a mental health issue your doctors at Cornerstone want to know about it so we can help.  

Cornerstone doctors can confidentially help identify the issues that need to be treated and coordinate care for therapy or psychiatric treatment if necessary. Our doctors are well-versed in the treatment of routine childhood and adolescent mental health issues and can prescribe medication for adolescent depression and anxiety when indicated. If you or your child is suffering, please ask to speak to your doctor today. We can only help if we know what you’re going through.


Prevention of serious mental illness and suicide starts with early intervention. Don’t hesitate to seek help. Contact your doctor or find a mental health provider here.
