Residential Mental Health Programs and Services

Nestled in the heart of Litchfield County, Connecticut, Wellspring offers two beautiful, bucolic campuses that effortlessly take the word facility out of residential mental health facilities.

Two Beautiful Campuses Focused on Healing

Wellspring main campus

Adolescent Campus

Wellspring’s main campus provides a bucolic private school environment set on 15 acres with two comfortable residential homes tucked in among perennial and vegetable gardens, pastures, a working barn and multiple school buildings, including a gym, science lab and an art studio.

This campus provides:

  • Two separate and exceptionally well-staffed residential treatment programs for younger and older adolescent girls struggling with mental health and relational challenges. Both programs feature comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment and special education services.
  • A highly respected licensed and accredited private therapeutic special education school for residential and day students serving grades 7-12.  Arch Bridge School provides college preparatory academics, with clinical supports throughout the school day by a team of master’s level clinicians.
  • Outpatient therapy, counseling services and medication management.

Angelus House Campus

Our adult therapeutic community is on its own 10 acre campus, and it is the home for Angelus House which is a residential treatment center for adult women and gender diverse people who struggle with a variety of psychiatric conditions and emotional challenges.

The program provides:

  • A multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a psychiatrist, nurses, psychotherapists, social workers, art therapist and milieu counselors.
  • Intensive clinical therapies integrated with culinary and organic gardening program, yoga, recreation & adventure programing and animal programming.
  • Transition/step-down program and college transition services to ensure a meaningful return to life with family or independent living.

Before I came to Wellspring, I was so lost and confused. I was angry and unhappy with little respect for anything, especially myself. Wellspring allowed me to understand what a real relationship is; with other people and most importantly, myself.

Treatment Philosophy

Founded on a belief in the uniqueness and dignity of the individual.

We strive always to see, know, and reach the essential person in our care. What we seek in therapy, counseling and education is not external social adjustment alone, but to help the person access what is inherent in personality and giftedness — the “wellspring” of one’s own being — that is ultimately the basis for a stable and creative individual life.
