Our Mission:

Through individual, person-centered rehabilitation planning, we assist our members in setting and achieving recovery and community integration goals.

Our programs provide individual and group therapy and skill building activities designed to improve the ability to interact and function in the community. Recovery is a process in which individuals with severe mental illness are encouraged to take control of their lives, set goals, take advantage of opportunities and return to living, learning, working and socializing activities of their choosing.

Our History:

In 1955-56 The Louisville Section of the National Council of Jewish Women studied mental health needs in Kentucky. They identified a need for programs to help ease the transition from mental hospitals back to community participation. Bridgehaven was founded in 1958 as a result of this study, the first community program in Jefferson County, and only the third of its type nationally to serve people with psychiatric problems outside a hospital setting.
