About Windhorse Integrative Mental Health

An alternative nonprofit since 1993, Windhorse Integrative Mental Health is a community-integrated program for adults experiencing various mental health challenges (depression, schizoaffective disorder, trauma, bipolar, social anxiety, schizophrenia, etc.). Many clients face secondary addiction issues. While valuing clinical perspectives, we go beyond diagnostic labels to recognize each person’s strengths and history of sanity.

Windhorse operates in three locations: Northampton, MA; San Luis Obispo, CA; Portland, OR

An alternative to current mental health residential treatment programs, Windhorse uses multi-disciplinary clinical teams and therapeutic households in the community to support our client’s recovery journey. Clients receive more therapeutic 1-on-1 time with clinicians each week then most other programs. Through this strong web of support, Windhorse clients live with the same dignity and respect as their peers whose lives have not been disrupted by a mental illness.

Our program is based on three healing principles:

– All human beings are fundamentally sane
– If a healthy environment is created, clients will have a greater probability of recovery
– Recovery is discovering one’s own fundamental health and sanity

No matter how severely confused a mind has become, recovery is possible.
