May 16, 2014 · I have a close friend who suffers from clinical depression and anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

Only Rochester has mental health care. I was admitted in December 2007 to the Mood Disorder unit after years of depression and a local psychiatrist who had me on very high dosages of medications. Although I live in Florida the only Mayo Clinic for psych care is Minnesota. It was so worth the trip. I highly recommend your friend going there.

Yes, I was admitted to the in-patient Mood Disorder unit in Rochester. It was the best thing that could have happened to me. My local doctor was not listening to me and just kept upping my meds. Mayo discovered toxic levels of Lamictal in my system, and put me on a 9 month regiment to wean me from high dosage of Klonopin. They provided primarily CBT, but also fun classes for positive outlets (yoga, wood burning), and some free time to share with other patients. Also had info for family members. I was diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety disorder. They sent us home with books for reference, an exit plan, and a 24-hr phone number. I kept in touch with several other patients as it was such a strong sharing and bonding time. My experience was excellent – life changing.
