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 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 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 and outpatient, 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, residential programs and foster care services 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 Premiere 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 can be challenging for families, and the strain on other members of the family is sometimes almost too great to bear. At Hillside, we treat children struggling with mental illness and help heal the damage mental illness often causes for families. With community-based services, Hillside provides continuing care to support healing families.

A Continuum of Care
With 125 years of caring for children and families, Hillside is deeply committed to helping every child who enters our door. It is our mission to provide the best care possible and ensure our children reach every level of success that they desire.
