Few things can be as overwhelming and frustrating as mental illness – or finding effective treatments. At Skyland Trail, we get it. Which is why we take a different approach to helping adults with mental health issues.
Located in Atlanta, Skyland Trail is a nationally recognized nonprofit mental health treatment organization serving adults ages 18 and older.
We’re not a hospital or lock-down institution, we’re one of the nation's top mental health treatment centers – a voluntary treatment community of clients finding new ways to overcome the limitations of their illness and reclaim their lives.
But success is built on a two-way commitment – we’re committed to our patients and we ask our patients to commit to our approach. Each client has to put in the time & effort needed to make real and sustainable progress.
As a long-term residential treatment facility, we’re serious about healing and we’re passionate about the community we serve.
As one of the best mental health treatment centers in the country, we’re focused on people with complex mental health issues, helping them understand that they are more than their diagnoses dictate – helping them grow, recover and reclaim their lives.
We treat adults ages 18 and older with a primary psychiatric diagnosis - a mood or thought disorder like bipolar illness, major depression, or schizophrenia, or an anxiety disorder. Most clients have co-occurring diagnoses including alcohol or substance abuse, borderline personality disorder, or secondary anxiety disorders. Because of our onsite primary care clinic, we can support those who have medical health needs in addition to psychiatric needs.
While our clients are largely from Georgia & the southeast we have many clients from across the U.S. & a few from around the world. Many clients enter our residential psychiatric treatment program after leaving a hospital or other acute facility.
