Burrell is a private, not for profit organization that provides a wide range of mental health services for individuals and families, business and industry, and educational programs for community and professional groups.

From its beginning in 1977, Burrell has been committed to helping people maximize their potential. Our philosophy is embodied in the two inscriptions near the entrance of the Main Center:

“In all things, there is opportunity for growth…” “Value what you are and what you can become.”

Our services are designed to be responsive to the specific needs of the individuals we serve. New services are developed as the needs of our community are recognized and defined. It is our mission to continue to provide, develop and refine services which have been demonstrated to work!

Burrell is proud and delighted to announce that we have been selected by the National Council for Community Behavioral Health to receive an Award of Excellence in Technology. The award recognizes an organization that uses new technologies, including mobile, web, social media and remote/virtual care delivery, to achieve operational efficiencies and improve access to care, treatment, support and health outcomes for persons with mental illnesses and addictions. Burrell will be presented this award at the National Conference in April, and we look forward to sharing more about the program nominated and how it has already been replicated in other areas!
