Mulberry Center at Harrisburg is designed to offer quality psychiatric care in an environment where comprehensive medical care is available. Through an interactive experience, patients learn to better understand themselves and begin accepting responsibility for their own wellbeing. This process provides opportunities for patients to practice effective alternatives for managing their lives.

The inpatient unit is divided into two wings. The first is a general adult unit, housing individuals with psychiatric disorders which do not involve dementia. The second wing is a geropsychiatric unit which treats individuals whose psychiatric condition is complicated by dementia.

The treatment approach in the adult wing is based on a “therapeutic community” philosophy, where patients actively engage in treatment under the guidance of a comprehensive team of doctors, nurses, social workers and activity therapists.

In the geriatric wing, patients also receive services from nurses, social workers and activity therapists under the direction of psychiatrists, but more emphasis is placed on managing the cognitive deficits that are associated with dementia. Therapeutic interventions in this setting place an emphasis on sensory stimulation and reminiscence strategies.

Mulberry Center at Harrisburg has emergency admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.    Inpatient hospitalization tends to be brief, with the average stay being approximately one week.



Forward-thinking and financially strong, SIH prides itself in fostering leaders, promoting teamwork, and providing quality care coordination and transitions. Our passionate and strategic administration, alongside our friendly, skilled, and patient-focused staff, work together to  cultivate a supportive and positive working environment.
