During Your Stay
At Butler Hospital, a team of mental health providers work together to help you return to health.

On a daily basis therapeutic groups such as community meetings, occupational therapy groups, and educational groups about your illness and medications are offered. In addition, activities groups, tutoring for school work, and individual meetings with your treatment team take place to help you regain control of your life and health.
