Why a new Spring Harbor?
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
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.
