Find Support In Our Local Residential Crisis Stabilization For Acute Mental Health Crisis

Arbor House is a short-term residential program providing support and stabilization for adults 18 years old and over who are experiencing an acute mental health crisis. For some, Arbor House is an alternative to inpatient hospitalization or as a transition from the hospital to home. The program is designed to assist individuals in mobilizing their resources and community supports to aid in their recovery. Residents work closely with staff to identify goals, stabilize the current crisis, and develop a community support system for continued recovery after discharge. Individuals can be referred to Arbor House through their local CSB or Hospital.
