Skyland Trail began with the determination of Atlanta business leader Charles B. West. Through a friend’s experience, he learned of a void in mental illness treatment. In the early 1980s the dominant treatment model in Atlanta was hospitalization. There were no residential psychiatric treatment programs with the goal of reintegrating back into the community.
Few things can be as overwhelming and frustrating as mental illness – or finding effective treatments. At Skyland Trail, we get it. Which is why we take a different approach to helping adults with mental health issues.
