Timberlawn Behavioral Health System
Located within a grassy oasis, Timberlawn Behavioral Health System was founded in 1917 by Dr. James Terrill. Dr. Terrill recognized that mentally ill patients needed residential care in an environment where they felt safe and the individual attention to where they could thrive. At that time, there was a national reform movement to revolutionize care of the mentally ill. Patients were being moved out of the city’s general hospitals and jails, and into rural residential centers.
Today, Timberlawn offers inpatient treatment programs for adolescents, adults and older adults, creating individualized plans for each patient based on their specific needs. Services include medication management, psychiatric treatment, social support, recreational therapy, family therapy and more.
