Welcome to Hillside Of Atlanta, GA
The Hillside Team Are Experts At Providing Residential & Outpatient Behavioral Health Support for Youth, Adolescents, and Their Families.
Welcome to Hillside, where every day is a new day and a new beginning. Since our beginning in 1888, Hillside’s mission has been to help children and families thrive by providing outstanding residential services and community mental health services. Our programs focus on the strengths of our kids and encourage the growth and improvement they need to navigate through life. Hillside provides specialized cutting edge mental health care and education to children and their families.
Hillside Hospital is unique among mental health facilities for youth in Georgia that focuses on children, adolescents and young adults ranging in age from six to 24. Our services, both residential services and day programs, resolve family issues by helping children with mental illness move more successfully through adolescence into adulthood. With a staff fully trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), we have success with children who have not responded to other treatment modalities.
We offer community-based services and residential programs to reach children and teens where they are, at home, school and in the community. The help we offer includes individualized treatment programs that also incorporate the family to build a complete wrap-around support structure and improved family dynamics.
Hillside Is One Of The Premier Mental Health Facilities in GA
Our behavioral health centers in Atlanta, GA serve children and families from across the Southeast who are dealing with mental health issues that typically present or are exacerbated during adolescence. Managing mental health issues in children and teens can be challenging for families. The strain on other members of the family is sometimes almost too great to bear. At Hillside Hospital, we treat pre-teens and teens who are struggling with mental illness and help heal the damage mental illness often causes for families. With a continuum of outpatient services, Hillside is able to provide intensive care for families who need additional therapeutic support to prevent hospitalization or continuing care after discharge from hospitalization.
