Connection Between Childhood Adversity and Psychiatric Disorders Seen at Cellular Level
In a notable new study, Butler Hospital researchers identify an association between biological changes on the cellular level and both childhood adversity and psychiatric disorders.

Butler and Kent Hospitals Providing Overdose Antidote
Care New England Health System announced today that two of its hospitals, Butler Hospital, located in Providence and Kent Hospital, located in Warwick, are distributing naloxone, more commonly referred to as Narcan, to patients who have been treated for a drug overdose or who are at risk for an overdose.
Most people who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be helped by two established and highly effective treatments that are often used in combination: cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication. Even people with severe OCD usually benefit from these approaches.
Some individuals, however, do not get adequate relief using the above treatments despite the best efforts of themselves, their doctors, and their therapists. People in this group may be eligible to participate in new research examining Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) as a treatment for OCD.
Meet Rich, Sheila, Ann, and Nikki, members of Butler Hospital's Patient and Family Advisory Council. They share their individual experience, strength, and hope through these videos in order to help others living with a mental illness and people who have loved ones with a mental illness.
