The New Behavioral Health & Wellness Center at Touchette Regional Hospital

Offering Quality, Compassionate Care
Mental illness touches all walks of life, and everyone - regardless of their financial or social status - deserves the best care as they battle their disease. Touchette's expanded Behavioral Health & Wellness Center offers high-quality outpatient and inpatient care in an open, welcoming environment combined with an excellent clinical staff and evidence-based best practices.

For nearly 60 years, Touchette has treated a variety of health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, mood disorders, and other mental illness, through services focused on client-centered recovery:

An Open Concept to Care
The new Center feels less like an institution and more like home to improve client outcomes and get them back to their lives sooner. With its open concept and person-centered recovery model, clients are encouraged to interact with fellow patients and staff members through recreational therapy, support groups and activity therapy.

Touchette offers a high staff-to-client ratio, and clients and their families have direct access to a full staff of therapists, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric pharmacologists.
