We really enjoyed our time visiting our daughter at Yellowbrick. It is hard to overestimate what that meant to all of us and our happiness. We thought she seemed better and happier than we have seen her in years. Warm Regards
“Yellowbrick is a one of a kind establishment which allows young adults to exercise their valued freedom and to use those liberties to create better lives for themselves.”

Emerging adults need a balance of safety, structure, autonomy, and a community of relationships. Yellowbrick’s developmental neurobiological model integrates neuroscience, trauma informed psychotherapies, interventions for enhancing cognitive processing, executive functioning and lifeskills.
Treatment at Yellowbrick is customized. Individuals with psychiatric conditions have better outcomes with a more extended support platform and continued intensive treatment at varying levels of care to sustain enduring recovery.
The Residence provides emerging adults engaged in PHP at Yellowbrick the experience of Community membership while having the support in real-time to face the self-regulation, executive function and life-skill challenges of independent living.
Yellowbrick has created a developmentally specialized, research-based clinical model that integrates cutting-edge findings from neuroscience, innovative psychotherapies, strength-based life skills, and wellness medicine.
Across a spectrum of diagnoses and patterns of dysfunction, all of the young people coming to Yellowbrick share common difficulties in negotiating the universal challenges of transitioning into adulthood. Modal diagnoses include mood and anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, trauma-related and dissociative disorders, co-occurring psychotic disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, borderline and avoidant personality disorders, and “failure to launch.”

Thank you Bryn,
We really enjoyed our time visiting our daughter at Yellowbrick. It is hard to overestimate what that meant to all of us and our happiness. She still has a long way to go, don’t get me wrong. But we thought she seemed better and happier than we have seen her in years. She is “connecting the dots”. She likes the staff very much. All of you there have been very good with her and we appreciate it very much. Thank you all for what you do. It is awfully hard, I know. I look forward to our continued conversations.
Yellowbrick saved our son’s life. It is that simple and that complex. Our son (now 21) spent 7 months in the Yellowbrick program and he too agrees that it saved his life. I have worked in the field of children’s behavioral health my entire career and can say without a doubt the professional staff at YB is the most expert, clinically sophisticated, caring, and committed group I have ever experienced. They work nearly 24 hours a day, always on call, talking with the kids and the parents and managing endless crises.
I want to thank you for welcoming me so warmly to Yellowbrick yesterday. You and your excellent staff have created such a generous culture. I was struck by the continuity of kindness and care from every one I encountered – wow! And the Clinical Conference, I’m still thinking about how each person’s expertise and care were expressed so directly as if to say: “We care about you and we want you to get better – do you care as much?” I wish that I were looking for a job but instead, I’m heartened to know that such a place exists so that I might refer someone to your most excellent care.
Thank you for the inspiring visit, I’m grateful to have been invited.
Warm regards –
“I think of you and the team there often. You do really good work and you are incredibly brave and compassionate. I don’t know what the future will bring, but the last year and a half has been a gift that I know wouldn’t have happened without the time at Yellowbrick.”
Dr. Viner, I’m a former Yellowbrick patient and resident from over a decade ago. I have been thriving since leaving Yellowbrick, being especially stable for the past 8 years or so.
I want to express my sincere gratitude. It’s exciting that I’ve moved forward these past 12 years so much so that I don’t think about Menninger or Yellowbrick much. Taking care of my mental health is a priority but not my identity.
You all are truly unsung heroes.
Please take care.
I wanted to thank you for all the time you spent helping me get my life on track. You’ve had a lasting impact on my life, the kind that I’m never going to forget. Best wishes for the end of this year, the new year, and every year after that.
I was one of the first residents of Yellowbrick. I am happy to see it still running. I am married with two beautiful girls and am working as a registered nurse. Just wanted to touch base. Thank you for teaching me DBT as I find it a useful tool even today. I really do love and use the skills taught to me all those years ago. It still blows my mind when I think of how far I’ve come.
