Due to the confidentiality guaranteed by the R.I. Mental Health Law, we are unable to report on a patient's condition.
In March 2006, Butler Hospital created a user-friendly Community Guide to Mental Healthcare in Rhode Island. The guide lists treatment providers throughout the state by city or town and includes their contact information, types of insurance they accept, and their treatment specialty areas. It also contains descriptions of the different types of treatment providers, as well as overviews of common mental illnesses, their symptoms and treatments.
