Current & new innovations in programmatic support & service delivery

Mind Springs Health & West Springs Hospital provide nearly 200,000 mental health and addiction services to almost 24,000 unique individuals of all ages. Consumer need and utilization of services grow steadily with many more still in need, yet gaps in services remain and stigma still prevents people from seeking help. Mind Springs Health, in partnership with community nonprofits, city and county governments, private practice therapists, primary and acute care physicians and a host of other community partners working together to identify gaps and innovate ways to meet the wide-range of mental health and addiction treatment needs.

Award-winning treatment with extraordinary outcomes

Nationally recognized by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement as a recipient of the 2018 Sherman Award for Excellence in Patient Engagement, Mind Springs Health’s innovative ‘Phase-based Care’ is a rapid recovery program now being introduced in Mind Springs Health’s rural offices. ‘Phase-based Care’ shortens wait time to treatment from the national standard of one-to-three months to only 4 days, and reports recovery in 63% of clients after 6 weeks of treatment and 78% after 12 weeks, a rate 2-4 times greater than national norms.
