Why a new Spring Harbor?

Added community meeting space. Additional space will accommodate new employee orientation programs, public health-education offerings, and support group and community meetings.

An opportunity to decrease stigma. The stark, institutional appearance of the present facility is considered by many to contribute to the already prevalent stigma surrounding mental illness. The new facility, with its updated, more welcoming architectural design and color palette, will more appropriately communicate to consumers and community members the commitment to respect, dignity, and patient recovery that may be found within Spring Harbor’s walls.

A chance for a new beginning. The new facility represents an opportunity for Spring Harbor to relocate from the site of the former Jackson Brook Institute and thereby distinguish itself from its predecessor. The move simultaneously aims to strengthen public perception of Spring Harbor's name, image, and care philosophy.
