Executive Director of Communications

Austen Riggs Center

Stockbridge, Massachusetts

A residential treatment program since 1919, the Austen Riggs Center is a therapeutic community, open psychiatric hospital and center for education and research, promoting resilience and self-direction in adults (18+) with complex psychiatric problems. The Austen Riggs Center specializes in the long-term treatment of psychiatric disorders with intensive psychodynamic psychotherapy and a full range of psychiatric services, offered in a completely voluntary continuum of care that includes inpatient, residential and day treatment programs. Rated a “Best Hospital” in Psychiatry Nationwide by U.S. News & World Report, the Center continually builds on its distinguished past, helping patients develop personal competence in a completely open setting that emphasizes the individual’s capacity to face and take responsibility for his or her life — past, present and future. Each person designs his or her own treatment in collaboration with a professional interdisciplinary team, and no two treatments are identical.

The Austen Riggs Center’s level of excellence in patient care, research and training owes a great deal to the financial support of generous and caring individuals, businesses and philanthropic foundations. The Center has plans to grow its base to include individuals who wish to support the work of the Center and the groundbreaking research the staff is currently leading. The 100th anniversary of the Center, which takes place in 2019, will provide occasion to honor the Center’s rich history and seek increased gifts in celebration of the indelible impact of Austen Riggs.
