Offering Quality, Compassionate Mental Health Care for the Region

Mental illness touches all walks of life, and individuals dealing with mental illness deserve quality care regardless of their financial status.

Touchette's expanded Behavioral Health & Wellness Center offers outpatient and inpatient care in a warm and welcoming environment combined with dedicated clinical staff and evidence-based best practices.

Treating the Whole Person

For nearly 60 years, Touchette has treated a variety of health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, mood disorders, and other mental illnesses, through client-centered recovery. Now with our new state-of-the-art center, we can serve more individuals throughout St. Louis and Southern Illinois.

Inpatient Services - Our inpatient services are for individuals age 18 and older who need an intensive level of care and a safe treatment environment to reintegrate into their family life and community. Whether clients have medical issues related to aging, problems coping with the day-to-day stresses of life, or a major mental illness that’s intruding into their lives, treatment plans are personalized to address their goals and objectives.

Outpatient Services (Intensive and Partial Hospitalization Program for adults) - Our program helps adults age 18 and older experiencing acute mental illnesses or emotional disorders remain out of the hospital while they receive the treatment and support they need. Clients learn to develop problem solving and coping strategies, while managing behavioral health symptoms and emotions, from a dedicated and compassionate healthcare team.

Fridays - Individual and/or Family Sessions

An Open Concept to Care

With our Behavioral Health & Wellness Center's open concept and person-centered recovery model, clients are encouraged to interact with fellow patients and staff members through group psychotherapy including: activity therapy, recreational therapy, substance abuse groups, and support groups. The center offers natural light to ease the symptoms of depression and self-service refreshments and private phone areas to give clients a sense of autonomy. The center's enhanced security features protect the safety of clients, staff, and visitors.    

Touchette offers a high staff-to-client ratio. Clients and their families have direct access to a full staff of experienced therapists, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric pharmacologists. All staff members work in sync with each patient’s healthcare providers to ensure all their healthcare needs are met, not just their emotional needs.
