Butler Hospital Foundation
Founded in 1844, Butler Hospital is a nonprofit psychiatric hospital serving the mental health needs of the southeastern New England community. We welcome adolescents, adults and seniors from all walks of life by providing quality care without regard to race, gender, age or the ability to pay. Butler relies on its donors to help us meet these challenges and prepare for the future.
Our mission involves more than just treating people with psychiatric illnesses and substance use issues. We strive to educate the community to foster an understanding of people with mental health needs. We feel it is important to help reduce the stigma attached to mental illness. Our doctors conduct research in a wide range of areas including mood disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. As a teaching hospital for psychiatry behavior at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, we are dedicated to training tomorrow's psychiatrists, psychologists, medical students, pharmacy students and nurses.
Your generous donation ensures that these programs, services and research continue to improve the lives of people with mental illness, substance use and neurodegenerative disorders.
