Process Groups

  • These groups are smaller and focused around a topic.  Process group topics reflect the needs of the current patient population.

Coping Skills groups/workshops 

  • These groups focus on learning coping skills, similar to the DBT model.

Patient Government 

  • Elected for eight week terms, patients participate in meetings associated with these positions.


  • These include our art studio, theater, music cottage, music and voice lessons, greenhouse, volunteering at our nursery school, utilizing our full gym/fitness classes.  Social activities on campus are also an option (e.g. movie night, game night, etc.)

Off campus activities

  • Patients have the freedom to leave campus as they please and enjoy events off campus such as going to a movie, shopping and a meal out, or going for a hike in the beautiful Berkshire hills.
