Emily Acker, Hillside CEO & President in Atlanta

A letter from our CEO

It is my great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of Hillside, which has served children and families for over 130 years. Our enduring legacy of care has been made possible through many decades of community support, as well as the tireless work and expertise of our dedicated professionals.

Hillside is committed to evolving alongside ongoing advancements in mental healthcare. We employ evidence-based therapeutic modalities, rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, to deliver residential, community intervention, treatment foster care, in-home services, and our specialized day program, Experience DBT. This year, we also launched our #ReframeMentalHealth campaign on social media encouraging conversations to help end the stigma around mental health.

As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Hillside is able to provide a growing array of services thanks to the generosity of our supporters. If you are moved by our important work and wish to assist us in our mission to provide Healing and Hope, please consider making a donation.
