Letter from the CEO

Mike Kistler, CEO

Dear Families and Friends,

Welcome to Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health System’s website.  Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of our patients and support the families that care for them and love them.  We achieve this by offering innovative, compassionate, and effective services and care.  Our team works to provide prompt access to services while protecting confidentiality.

With four campuses offering 250 beds divided amongst acute care and diverse RTC programs, Shadow Mountain is one of the largest private psychiatric providers in the state and region.  We offer a full range of programs for children, adolescents and adults from acute inpatient care, residential treatment, therapeutic foster care, crisis intervention, and outpatient counseling with a medication clinic.  Many of our programs are specialized and detailed descriptions of them are available on this website.

I have led services with Shadow Mountain for over ten years and have witnessed both the hardships psychiatric issues present to families as well as the joys of restoring a child and family to healthier, more productive lives.  If your child or adolescent is struggling to overcome a mental health or behavioral health issue, please call us.  A better life is possible.

I hope this website is helpful to you.  If you have any questions about our services, do not hesitate to contact us.
