For over 30 years, Wellspring (www.wellspringky.org) has recognized that recovery from psychiatric illness does not mean finding a cure; rather, it means developing a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life despite the presence of mental illness.
Wellspring's Crisis Stabilization Units (CSUs) were established in 1995 to meet a growing need for residential mental health crisis services in the Metro area. Referrals come from community providers and hospitals, and the average length of stay is eight days. The Samuel B. Todd Center has an immediate opening for a full time Program Manager.
